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.
•Yardage: 201 m/ 220 yd per skein (880 yd per kit)
•Weight: Approximately 115 g / 4 oz per skein (16 oz per kit)
•Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 6-10
•Crochet Hook Size: G-J
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.
The internet cannot do these colors justice! They are absolutely gorgeous. And soooo soft!! I can’t wait to knit my shawl!
I was really looking forward to this kit, but I am very disappointed. The two browns are so close together in color that I can't tell them apart unless I hold them under very bright white light, and even then it may be wishful thinking on my part. In normal room lighting, they look exactly the same. The ad photo definitely shows way more difference in tone and value than what I received. The colors are also not labeled individually, so I have no idea which is supposed to be which for making the pattern. I have been pleased with previous EFA purchases, but this one missed the mark. Two stars for the yarn being super soft.
This is absolutely stunning yarn! I cannot wait to get started on the shawl. It is so soft that it is going to be lovely to work with - as all the yarns I have purchased from here!
Wow! These colors are fabulous! I can’t wait to start knitting the Fall Gloaming Shawl with these gorgeous colors! Thank you for the great kit Chandi!
I love all of the yarn and patterns I have received from expression fiber arts. The tutorials that go with the patterns are especially helpful. The end result is a beautiful product
The most gorgeous yarn! So soft-- almost too soft-- and subtle coloration are delicious. Haven't started knitting with this yet, just sleeping with it on my pillow... sigh.
This yarn is absolutely sublime! Soft and shiny and exactly as pictured. I couldn't have been happier to receive this as a gift.
The yarn is very soft and the color is saturated and beautiful. I can’t wait to work with this yarn
Simply the most beautiful colors I have ever seen! I can't wait to start the shawl and see these colors unfold. Chandi's yarn is the softest, most squishy yarn I have ever worked with, it is well worth the cost as it makes my work look amazing!
