Silk Blend is a luxurious blend of extrafine merino wool and silk resulting in a yarn with softness, lustre and drape. It is perfect for indoor garments and transitional outerwear. It comes in brilliant traditional colours yet the soft heathering of the fiber blend plus the gentle striations of the kettle-dyeing process also give depth and complexity to single-coloured projects.
As yarns are hand dyed, we recommend buying enough to complete a project. If there is great difference between skeins, we recommend knitting two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect.
