A shimmering, soft and strong yarn produced from ultrafine superwash merino with mulberry silk added for a natural lustre, added strength and more drape. Worsted spun from long staple fibres to produce a yarn with great stitch definition. The silk adds extra body to the yarn to hold stitches in shape on larger or lacey items. Creates items that shimmer in the light and have luxurious drape. Ideal for socks, shawls, scarves, gloves, jumpers and baby items.

After dyeing, the yarn is rinsed to remove any excess of dye. Even so, there may be some slight bleeding the first time the yarn is washed. I recommended washing newly knit items separately.

Care: gently hand wash in cold water, air-drying is recommended
