From DHG website:
What could be better than Piuma? Piuma XXL.
This super bulky version of our best seller will enchant you!
Obtained thanks to a semi-artisan spinning process and, like all of our yarns, it’s produced entirely in Italy.
As always the dyes are Oeko-Tex standard 100 certified and the wool fibre that’s used is mulesing-free. As real beauty is large and sustainable.
Made with our extra fine merino wool tops it’s slightly more twisted than the classic Piuma one, that’s to ensure strength but at the same time intensified volume.
Super easy to work with, both knitted and crocheted, when it’s worked this yarn tends to puff up even more and get chunkier.
An extra tip: the pure wool rovings may close slightly (don’t get felted!) with the first few washes. If you’re going to work Piuma XXL with really big needles or do openwork, or anyway quite open stitches, keep this in mind and remember to change the needles and measurements accordingly. You might find it useful to make a sample of the stitch and wash it before doing the actual project.
