A softly spun Merino wool and silk blend, heavy 4ply with a generous 365 metres per 100g.
Silk creates a beautiful sheen and merino wool lends the yarn a heavenly softness. With a rich display of colours this yarn is luxury in a skein and a treat to knit. This yarn is made with superwash merino making it suitable to wash in the machine at a cool temperature of 30 degrees Celcius.
Due to the soft twist and high silk content of this yarn we recommend using a 2.5mm to 3.25mm needle size, sizes above this can increase the chances of the yarn pilling.
