75% Extrafine Superwash Merino 25% Mulberry Silk Yarn (1/4 Nm)

Single Ply, Sock Weight .

A very soft and lustrous single ply yarn with a loose twist, resulting in a velvety texture with slight variations in thickness. It is perfect for shawls and cowls where the silk content gives the items sheen and drape. The yarn takes the dye beautifully with the silk reflecting the light to give a lustrous finish.

Singles yarns are more delicate than yarns with 2 or more plies because there is less twist to hold the fibers together. Treat singles yarns gently when dyeing and reskeining.

The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
