This unique combination of natural fibers provides a yarn that is lightweight and lustrous. Equal percentages of fine Merino Wool and Chinese Tussah silk are joined to create a truly elegant yarn.
Because wool and silk accept dyes differently, the fabric made from this yarn may have a slightly “tweedy” look if dyed in some shades.
Due to the difficulties inherent in dyeing wool-silk, some shades may be less resistant to fading in light and water than 100% wool. For this reason, we recommend that wool-silk garments not be exposed to natural or artificial light for prolonged periods. They should be hand washed in cool water & lay flat to dry.
