This skein is a 50/50 blend of merino wool and mulberry silk. It has wonderful bounce with beautiful drape and shine. A very soft skein that will allow you to create a wonderful item. This is a 2ply skein that has slight barberpoling. This was dyed by me and spun by me. This is between a DK weight and a light worsted. With 240 yards of length there is plenty to make a hat or pair of mittens which would be so amazingly soft.
