This delightfully drapey favorite combines 50% silk and 50% merino into a single-ply DK yarn that is absolutely a treat to weave or to knit and a joy to wear. The combination is soft, smooth, and itch-free even on the most sensitive skin- absolutely wonderful for garments, scarves, and other next-to-your-skin items. The silk content gives the yarn a bit more weight and drape than a pure merino, and a slight sheen that is absolutely gorgeous. The fibers take dye a little differently, adding extra depth to the wide selection of semi-solid, variegated, and watercolor-multi colorways available.
We source our fiber from an amazing family-owned yarn company located in Uruguay and Peru called Malabrigo. They have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations, produced mostly by women of all ages. These colorful yarns are made out of the softest fibers available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life.
Malabrigo wool is 100 % produced by farms that allow their free - range sheep through the hills and are herded by actual old - style shepherds. The controversial practice of mulesing does not exist in Uruguay. When using Merino wool of a different origin, they make sure it is also mulesing - free. By using Malabrigo, you make sure you're handmade projects are sustainable and ethical.
As Malabrigo’s yarns are hand-dyed, colors may vary from skein to skein, even within the same dye lot. This is increased by variegated color. Make sure to get enough yarn for your project.
