A 70% extra fine merino and 30% mulberry silk this yarn is carefully spun as a single ply. It creates a lovely drapey fabric and is light and warm. It is equivalent to a 4ply sock weight yarn, and I have dyed a collection that remind me of sweeties from my childhood. Spangles is possibly my favourite and the yarn I used for the sample of The Slow Exposure Shawl (available in kits here). There are also several semi-solid shades in this yarn.
A couple of things to bear in mind about all hand dyed yarn:
- 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.
- 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.
