The ideal introduction to luxury blends, this Louet blend of 80% fine undyed Merino with 20% natural tussah silk is a real treat to spin. Both the merino and the silk in this blend are top-quality and a true delight to spin, producing an incredibly broad range of fabulous luxury yarns with a good combination of memory, stitch definition, drape, and a subtle sheen only silk can provide. Louet's Merino/Silk blend is a highly addictive and a favorite among spinners at all levels. Suitable for dyeing projects as this fiber takes acid dyes beautifully and is extremely popular with independent dyers and hand painters. The natural color has a slightly creamy appearance. This blend is combed with a 23.5-micron count.
