Single construction means this yarn is not plied, it is a single strand of smoothly spun fiber. Single construction behaves a little differently than plied yarn – you’ll likely notice a bias to your finished fabric.
Merino wool is soft, warm, sturdy and durable. Silk adds strength, drape and luster.
Use this yarn for a cozy cowl, scarves, hats, fingerless mitts and other accessories. Great for a thick, cozy shawl or wrap.
Comes from a smoke free home with cats.
Each skein is unique. If you use more than one in the same project, work from two skeins at a time and alternate every other row or so to help avoid unwanted color pooling and disguise differences between individual skeins.
