We endeavor to display color as accurately as possible but, due to monitor variations, your monitor may display the yarns differently than they appear in real life. We also attempt to display the yarns in the bases listed as often as possible. However, we source most of our photographs from our vendors, and since every color is not listed in every base the color may be represented on a base different from the one you are purchasing. Please email or call us if you have ANY questions about the yarn base and color prior to purchase! Your happiness is our every desire!
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 colours this yarn is luxury in a skein and a treat to knit. This yarn is made with super wash 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. Although the British name of this yarn is "Sport" the actual gauge is a heavy fingering.
