A shimmering, soft and strong yarn produced from Ultrafine Superwash Merino with Mulberry Silk added for a natural lustre, added strength and more drape.
Worsted spun from long staple fibre to produce a yarn with great stitch definition. The silk adds extra body to the yarn to hold stitches in shape on larger or lacy items. Creates items that shimmer in the light and have luxurious drape. Ideal for socks, shawls, hats, scarves, gloves, jumpers and baby items.
This yarn was inspired by the hosts of gorse blossoms which flourish in the Highlands of Scotland filling the air with the fragrance of coconut.
