This delightfully drapey yarn combines 50% silk and 50% merino into a single-ply DK yarn that is a treat to knit and a joy to wear. The combination is soft, smooth, and itch-free even on the most sensitive skin - wonderful for garments, scarves, and other next-to-your-skin items.
The silk content gives the yarn a bit more weight and drape than a pure merino, and a slight sheen that is absolutely gorgeous and the colours have an extra depth.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. With some colours, the skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random colour distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
