Malabrigo : Silky Merino


Malabrigo : Silky Merino

A beautiful combination 50% silk and 50% merino in 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 fibres take dye a little differently, adding extra depth to the colourways available.

Great for: Accessories, shawls, garments, cables, colourwork, textured stitches, lace.
