A fabulously soft and luxurious blend of 80% superwash-treated Merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% silk; a marvellous choice for lacy scarves and shawls, decadent socks, or kitten-soft gloves.
The unbleached cashmere gives this yarn a pale brownish cast; it takes dye wonderfully but would be more suitable for darker colours, not so much for pastel shades.
