Malabrigo Silky Merino

Silk Merino is a delightfully drapery favourite that combines 50% silk and 50% merino into a single-ply sport to DK yarn that is absolutely a treat to knit and a joy to wear.

The combination is soft, smooth, and itch-free even on the most sensitive skin. It is 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 fibres take dye a little differently, adding extra depth to the wide selection of semi-solid, variegated, and watercolour-multi colourways available. Great for accessories, shawls, garments, cables, colour-work, textured stitches, lace.
