YARN - Superwash Merino Wool Silk Pearlescent Worsted - (50:50) Smooth with a gorgeous gleam
Sure to be a favorite!
MERINO WOOL is ultra soft, creamy to the touch, cloud-like and breathes so you stay comfortable and cozy. We had these spun with a very fine merino wool so it's incredibly soft and wonderful for next-to-skin accessories and garments. It has a lovely stretch and "memory" so it's a breeze to create hats, mittens, sweaters, socks, boot toppers, blankets and virtually anything else you'd need some elasticity and bounce for.
MULBERRY SILK is a dream... it glows and gleams and takes the dye so well, that the colors just pop like crazy. It also contributes to the lovely softness.
~When you combine these two fibers into a single ply yarn like this, you get subtle differences in tone as the wool and silk take the dye slightly differently. The colors truly appear to be iridescent and other-worldly.
•1-ply : For ultra shimmer and glow!
•Worsted Weight: Ideal for next-to-skin accessories or sweaters, sweet baby items, blankets and so much more. Great for all skill levels, even beginners as it's a popular worsted weight thickness.
•Superwash Merino Wool - Mulberry Silk blend (50% of each) - hand-wash only for best results. Super soft like buttah, with a shine that just won't quit.

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
Pictures do not do this colorway justice. It is absolutely stunning and you will not be disappointed. This yarn base is perfect for cowls and scarves and everything in between, you want this yarn. No, you need this yarn.
I agree with the other reviewer, as I, too, am at a loss for words to describe this colorway. And nevermind the YARN base! I have always loved this base, and this colorway is just absolutely gasp-inducing, for lack of a better description. My previous fav EFA yarn was Botanical on the Alpaca Silk, but this may...MAY...have nudged that one into a very close second, for me. I am not kidding, GET, THIS, YARN. This is a colorway that you could use with other colors, or not. And is equally suited, in my opinion, for any age, and any gender. It really is stunning.
I have no words that could possibly do this yarn justice. It is gorgeous and beyond!
