70% superwash merino wool, 30% silk... oh, my. Smooth and shiny, with a nice weighty hand. Soft cream colour. A very, very lovely yarn.
Although the wool has been superwash treated, keep in mind that silk is more delicate - you'll want keep your temperatures as low as possible during the dyeing process, and gently handle the yarn when it's very wet.
Finished project care: machine wash cool on gentle cycle, tumble dry low for 15 minutes, then lay flat to finish drying.
Light fingering weight, 2/6 nM. Approximately 350 meters (380 yards) per 115 gram skein.
Recommended gauge: about 7 or 8 stitches per inch.
Undyed yarns are stored and sold with the spinning oil still in; give your skeins a bath with a gentle detergent or wool wash to remove it before dyeing, and bring up the full bloom of the yarn.
