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 mottled tonal light turquoise and speckled with gold, rust, caramel brown, green, violet and pink. The hanks are not twisted prior to speckling so coverage is random. They are highly variegated and should be alternated if more than one is used. Two socks knit with the same hank won’t be identical. These more randomly dyed colourways vary from batch to batch and from hank to hank within a batch.
For the most part this is a paler version of Guitars, Cadillacs with a few specks of pink added.
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.
