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.

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.
I am in love with any of these pearlescent worsted yarn bases. My favorite was the silk pearlescent worsted until they were discontinued. So now these have become my favorite. It’s so soft and squishy. I hug it and sniff it, like it’s alive. (I know That sounds crazy) butvthats how I feel about this yarn. Im not sure what I am making with Fireflies yet. I sometimes save it for special accessories for my critters I make, or a special gift.
This is lovely yarn. the colors are beautiful and shimmers like water. Not to mention it knits up wonderfully.
The colors are so vibrant. I'm not sure yet what I'm making with it but whatever I make will be beautiful. The quality of the yarn is out of this world. Chandi never lets us down!
This yarn is even more beautiful in person. It's shine is otherworldly. It's soft, and the colors are immensely gorgeous. I can't wait to make a project with it!
I bought a few of these beauties! I already have a pattern in mind and can't wait to get started! The colors are vibrant and the material is supper soft and easy to work with.
I just received my order yesterday and it is by far the most beautiful color-way I have purchase here. Chandi, you have outdone yourself with this one. The colors are rich and gorgeous and I am now in search of the perfect project for it. I love it!
