Euro 500 cones

Euro 500 is a 6-Ply yarn, originally introduced in Europe as a heavy-Lace handknitting yarn and used widely for shawls. While it is spun from our springy superwash merino, what sets Euro 500 apart from the crowd is twofold: yardage and skein weight.

Yardage-wise, On Trend: Lately, we have seen many patterns calling for yarns with approximately 500 yards/100 grams for new patterns.  Euro 500 takes it's name from the meters per 100 grams, and that translates into 548 yards per 100 gram measurement.  This presentation on cones is new for us in May of 2015.  If our customers like having Euro 500 on cones, we will continue this presentation in the future.  

With 548 yds per industry standard skeins of 100 grams, Euro 500 weight falls between our fingering/sock yarns and our Select laceweight categories. Perfect for lace knitting. Perfect for sock knitting and for baby clothes, shawls, hats, gloves, and any fine knitting pattern.  It blooms when dyed and dried.

Euro 500 cones: 5,480 yds prox on a kilo cone of this 6-Ply yarn in 100% Merino Superwash
