This delightfully drapey favorite combines 50% silk and 50% merino into a single-ply DK yarn that is absolutely a treat to knit and a joy to wear. The combination is soft, smooth, and itch-free even on the most sensitive skin- absolutely wonderful for garments, scarves, and other next-to-your-skin items. The silk content gives the yarn a bit more weight and drape than a pure merino, and a slight sheen that is absolutely gorgeous. The fibers take dye a little differently, adding extra depth to the wide selection of semi-solid, variegated, and watercolor-multi colorways available. Great for accessories, shawls, garments, cables, colorwork, textured stitches, lace.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since skeins may vary. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
