Colour: Lilac Content: 70% Superwash Merino Wool, 30% Tussah Silk Weight: 100 grams / 3.5 oz Yardage: 400 m / 438 yds Gauge: 7 - 8 stitches per inch on 2-2.75mm (US 0-2) needles
Mmm, soft, squishy Merino paired with shimmery silk! The high twist single ply construction results in unique, subtle washes of colour and makes it well suited for items such as shawls, cowls, shrugs, baby sweaters or a very special pair of socks - most definitely next to skin soft! The yarn looks slightly over twisted in the skein but that disappears once you start knitting with it.
Washing: Machine washable, cool water, lay flat to dry, but gentle hand washing will better prolong the life of your finished projects.
I dye all the items in my non-smoking, cat friendly studio using professional acid dyes.
If you would like this yarn wound into a centre pull ball, let me know and I can do that free of charge.
I do my best to accurately photograph my items but be aware that your computer monitor may show colours differently than mine.

This yarn is a little more like lace yarn than fingering yarn, but I love the color and the feel of the yarn. !

I usually ship within 2-7 business days. I use Canada Post for all shipping. Shipping, particularly within Canada, can vary considerably depending on the destination. If the actual cost of shipping is less than what I've charged you, I'll refund any difference over $1. I wish all shipping was free, or at least fairly reasonably priced. Sadly, this is not the case. To keep shipping costs as low as possible I use the most economical method:
Within Canada: Regular Parcel, which in includes tracking and insurance. Delivery is usually within 2-8 business days, depending on the destination.
USA: The most economical shipping method is Small Packet Air, which does not include tracking or insurance. This is the shipping rate quoted on my listings. Due to the absence of tracking and insurance, items shipped this way are out of my control once I’ve shipped them. Any losses or damages that occur during shipping will be the responsibility of the shipping agent. For this reason you may want to consider upgrading to Tracked Packet shipping for destinations outside Canada. Tracked Packet includes tracking and insurance. There is an additional cost for this option. If you’re interested in using this method please contact me for an upgraded shipping quote. Any customs or brokerage fees at the final destination are the responsibility of the buyer. Delivery is approximately 4-10 days, depending on the destination.
International Destinations: The most economical shipping method is Small Packet Air, which does not include tracking or insurance. This is the shipping rate quoted on my listings. Due to the absence of tracking and insurance, items shipped this way are out of my control once I’ve shipped them. Any losses or damages that occur during shipping will be the responsibility of the shipping agent. Any customs or brokerage fees at the final destination are the responsibility of the buyer. Delivery is approximately 7-28 days, depending on the destination.
Delivery time estimates are from Canada Post.
Items will be shipped to the address on the PayPal receipt unless you’ve told me otherwise in the notes to seller.
