50% Silk & 50% Superwash Merino 400m (437 yards) 100g Skein 4ply sock weight This yarn base takes colour wonderfully with a light sheen, it is strong and soft. Perfect for next to the skin projects: hats, shawls, mittens, snoods and scarves or a luxury sweater. It is recommended to knit a swatch to obtain the gauge you need for the pattern you are knitting or to see what type of fabric you would like to create with the colourway. Although this yarn is machine washable I'd recommend hand washing to prolong the life of your hand knitted items. I try to ensure all colours look true on my monitor but on different monitors the colour can vary slightly.
