Take all the words used to describe merino - buttery soft, kitten-like, delicious - and triple them. This 19.5 micron merino is combined with 15% silk and then loosely plied in a pebbly texture that makes colors glow. It's incredible to knit and to wear. This yarn shines best in stockinette or garter for luxurious sweaters or simple lace patterns for shawls and scarves. It's a perfect yarn for an heirloom baby item as well. I could play with it all day (and often do)! Each 100g skein contains ~500 yards of yarn.
