Malabrigo Silky Merino is a delightfully drapey favorite made up of 51% silk and 49% merino. It is a single-ply DK skein that is an absolute 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 gorgeous. The fibers take dye a little differently than others, adding extra depth to the wide selection of semi-solid, variegated, and watercolor-multi colorways available. Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project, since each bag is a different dye lot and skeins may vary from bag to bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. Great for: Accessories, shawls, garments, cables, colorwork, textured stitches, lace.
