BLUE SILK HEATHER, a 6-ply DK weight yarn. The yarn contains several carefully blended colors to achieve a heathery --navy blue-- look. The colors remain the same throughout the skein. The yarn is super soft with a luxurious sheen; it drapes well and is wound in a center-pull ball. Feeling is believing - this yarn is seriously deluxe and a joy to work with.15% silk, 35% merino, 50% cotton - hand wash in cold/lukewarm water100 gr skein (appr.)240 yds/219 m (appr.)Needles: US 7-9 or 4.5- 5.5 mmFor pattern ideas check our Ravelry group, Fans of Wolle's Yarn Creations.I try to represent the colors as accurately as possible in both description and photos, but please note that monitors may vary in their display of colors.
