MERIBELLA 75/25 DK: Approximately 100g/246 yards 75/25 superwash superfine Merino wool/silk, a luxurious 4 ply DK weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed a tonal blue-grey with touches of turquoise then speckled with brown, copper-brown, grey and a bit of purple. This base always results in a bit of a watercolour-like result because of the silk. This is a variegated colourway and though the hanks all share the same colours, each is unique - please alternate hanks if using more than one.
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.
