Mulberino Singles Semi-Solids

(3 customer reviews)


Semi solid single ply yarn with 70% superwash merino and 30% silk, dyed in a selection of semi-solid colours, primarily to be used as kits for The Slow Exposure Shawl. Hence these yarns are sold in pairs.



Semi-solid single ply yarn, made with 70% extra fine merino and 30% mulberry silk it creates a lovely drapey fabric that is light and warm, and has a silky sheen to it. It is equivalent to a 4ply sock weight yarn. I have created these semi-solid colours specifically for the Slow Exposure Shawl kit. The kit requires two of these, and as batch/dyelot is important so if you purchase 2 then I will ensure they are from the same dyelot, and if not I will dye them especially. I have a selection of variegated colourways here.

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. (Probably not necessary with this yarn and pattern combination)
  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.
