Gifts from the Sea (MerSilk)
75% Superwash Extra fine Merino (19.5 micron) 25%Silk Yarn (4/16Nm)
The extra fine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. Silk is the perfect natural fibre for durability AND luxury. This blend has beautiful shine and drape. This yarn is incredibly versatile and can be used for any next to skin project (scarves, jumpers etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extra fine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available. This results in a super soft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
