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.
OH MY GOODNESS! The feel.. the color... there is just no wrong with this! It is a MUST HAVE!
The yarn is super soft & the color hues are gorgeous ! Great purchase !
This yarn is gorgeous, the photos are good but this yarn is even better in person. The subtle shifting tones and colours give enormous visual depth and texture and the colours are rich and saturated. Very soft yarn, the single ply is easy to split but it's well worth the little bit of extra care while knitting to have the drape and sheen of a single ply.
As always, the Pearlescent Worsted yarn is exceptional. But the colors? This one in particular is a must-have. The blues are so deep and true without the pesky gray hue that seems so prevalent in so many mass produced yarns. I am currently using it in a project with the Copper Worsted--gorgeous!
Your colors never fail to disappoint! Rich, beautiful color in the softest yarn imaginable! Once again, I'm extremely happy with my purchase.
I must admit, it was the name of this yarn that first got my attention, and I'm so glad I bought it. Blue is my favorite color and any variation of it will be a winner for me. The color is gorgeous, rich and velvety, the yarn is so squishy and soft, I cannot wait to work with it. And shine, oh the shine...!
