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, scarves, gloves, jumpers and baby items.
This unique, subtle and mysterious colourway is one of our favourites! This subtlety and depth of colours is only truly revealed in the stitch definition of the knitted item. We created the range of colours by single dyeing sections of the yarn in 3 different botanical dye pots and then overdyeing the whole skein with Indigo.
