    one of my favourite yarns

    silky merino is soft, drapey, and has a beautiful sheen - wonderful colours. I am very sensitive to a lot of yarns, but find this totally non-itch, and it is a favourite transitional yarn for sweaters as well as accessories. Sometimes two or three skeins of silky merino bring life to otherwise dull Stash yarns and I often mix'n match these - it's fun too.

Description

This delightfully drapey favourite combines 50% silk and 50% merino into a single-ply DK yarn that is an absolute treat to knit and a joy to wear. The combination is soft, smooth, and itch-free even on the most sensitive skin- absolutely 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. The fibres take dye a little differently, adding extra depth to the wide selection of semi-solid, variegated, and watercolour-multi colourways available.

Great for: Accessories, shawls, garments, cables, colourwork, textured stitches, lace.
