From the Shoppel family of yarns, Pur is a bulky weight color changing yarn. It's made from the finest Merino Wool, then spun into a single ply yarn and lightly felted. The result is a wonderful fiber that feels beautiful against the skin. It's created with eco friendly dyes that leave practically no trace of any chemicals, making this yarn a great natural choice for children. It has actually become an approved yarn of the Waldorf Schools in Germany. Pur is not chemically treated to be a superwash and therefore should be washed by hand with cool water. Available in 20 colorful shades.
