A softly spun Merino wool and silk heavy 4ply with 365m/399yds 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 super wash merino making it suitable to wash in the machine at 30 degrees.
Due to the soft twist and high silk content of this yarn we recommend using a 2.5mm (US 1.5) - 3.25mm (US 3) needle size, sizes above this can increase the chances of the yarn pilling.
