Fingering/Sock weight. Three plies of merino/nylon are spun with a ply of lurex for a soft, durable yarn with sparkle. A lot of time was spent working with our spinners to get the blend just right for "Stardust". There is enough lurex to add sparkle, without the scratchiness often associated with lurex yarns, and extrafine merino for a soft handle. Add nylon and you have durability too! The silver lurex retains its strength and shine through the dyeing process and is well plied with the wool, making it a pleasure to work with.
