MERIBELLA 75/25 DK: Approximately 100g/246 yards 75/25 superwash superfine Merino wool/silk, a luxurious 4 ply DK weight yarn.
These were dyed in a crowded pot with washes of red, fuchsia, mahogany and scarlet then speckled lightly on top with hot pink, yellow, bordeaux and scarlet. They are variegated and each hank is unique though all share the same colours. The silk content makes for a more watercolour-like effect. Please alternate hanks if using more than one. Note that the yarns pictured are on various bases but reasonably depict the colourway.
This is a sleek, soft, plied DK weight yarn that appears to have a much higher silk content than it does thanks to the superfine Merino fibre. It’s slinky and decadent with some Merino smoosh remaining for good measure. It will make a lovely shawl, scarf, hat or swingy cardi, but it would be good for just about anything worn next to the skin. It has lovely drape and is silky soft and shiny.
Despite its superwash designation, please hand wash in cool water and air dry flat to maintain optimum colour and texture. This is a very luxurious base.
