This is a buttery, shimmery blend of beautiful green Merino, fine New Zealand Corriedale and a mix of Tussah and Mulberry silk.
Merino and Corriedale are both lovely, soft wools with a medium staple length that spin evenly, and work well in fine yarns, and felt well. The high silk content of this blend means that the spun yarn will have a slightly heavy drape, and will have a silky sheen that is very noticable. It's ideal for spinning into yarn for use in shawls and scarves, but will also work for garments, including gloves, as it has plenty of elasticity to stop it losing its shape when washed.
