This unique combination of natural fibers provides yarn that is both lightweight and lustrous. Equal percentages of fine Merino wool and Chinese Tussah silk are joined to create a truly elegant yarn.
Because wool and silk accept dyes differently, the fabric made from this yarn may have a slightly “tweedy” look in some shades and you may find the occasional silk nep.
Some shades may be less resistant to fading in light and water than 100% wool due to the inherent difficulties dyeing fiber with this high silk content.
Color swatches are displayed in the same order as on the color card.
Finished pieces should be dry cleaned or very gently hand washed.
