Mulberino 4ply

(11 customer reviews)


A Mulberry Silk Superwash Merino blended delicate 4ply yarn in a variety of variegated shades. Perfect for shawls, jumpers and socks. These are all dyed in small batches so don’t hang around – if you see something you like my advice is buy it! The next batch may be very different.  If you want a larger quantity please let me know. I also have a selection of Semi-Solid colours in this yarn that work perfectly with these colourways.

A 50:50 Superwash merino silk sock yarn with the glimmer and drape of silk, and the softness of merino yarn. It literally shines.  I love this blend so much that I also have it in Lace and DK.

Thinking up names for all of my colourways never seemed to do them justice. As I love music almost as much as colour it seemed that a good and never-ending source of inspiration would be to name them after some of my favourite tracks…

A couple of things to bear in mind about hand dyed yarn:

  1. No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. I recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row for consistency on larger projects.
  2. Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal – think jeans…) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate.

    You cannot fault the luxurious feel of this yarn. I imagine it will be amazing to knit with. The only thing I would say is that it doesn’t look the same as the photo on the website. There is no purple or blue at all. There was just the pink, yellow and green so slightly disappointed. I must say also that it arrived beautifully packaged.

      Hi Wendy,
      Thanks for leaving a review! I’m so sorry that the colours weren’t the same as in the photo. This is by far my most popular colourway and as such I have done hundreds, however each one is always slightly different. If you would like to swap them for another couple of skeins please let me know and I will make sure my next batch has more purple/blue.

    Beautiful yarn, soft enough to be worn next to the skin, and gorgeous colourways.

    Lovely yarn, just what I was expecting. Making my garment with it now so unsure of how it will wash, last etc. But I expect it will be just fine.

    The yarn that came looked nothing like it did on the screen and I wasn’t very happy with the match but it still very soft and I’, sure someone would like it

      Dear June,
      I am so sorry that you didn’t like the yarn? I am really surprised by your comment as I had actually sent you a photograph of the exact skein that I was sending you, next to the colourway that you had already purchased so that you could see them next to each other… It’s not the same as the one on the website but that’s why I sent you the photograph via email.
      I am not sure what else I could have done, but of course if you are not happy with it please by all means return it and I will happily offer you a refund.
      Best wishes
