Fiberspates Scrumptious Sport Superwash Merino & Silk
45% Silk/55% superwash merino.
A softly spun Merino wool and silk heavy 4ply with 365m/399yds per 100g. Silk creates a beautiful sheen and merino wool lends the yarn a heavenly softness. With a rich display of colors, this yarn is luxurious in a skein and a treat to knit. This yarn is made with superwash merino making it suitable to wash in the machine at 30 degrees.
Due to the soft twist and high silk content of this yarn we recommend using a 2.5mm (US 1.5) - 3.25mm (US 3) needle size, sizes above this can increase the chances of the yarn pilling.
