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 smoothly plied in a way that makes colors glow. It's incredible to knit and to wear. This yarn shines in luxurious sweaters or lace patterns for shawls and scarves. It's a perfect yarn for an heirloom baby item as well. 350 yards/100g per skein non-superwash yarn. Please hand wash.
