This beautiful skein is spun from an interesting combination of 70% Merino and 30% Soy silk (from soybeans). The result is a typical soft Merino yarn but with a unique glossy effect from the soysilk. Hand dyed in shades of blue, pink, purple and ecru, it combines softness with a beautiful drape. This would knit up into a cute and colorful shawl to snuggle!

Merino sheep are hardy and thrive in environments which are much too harsh for other domesticated sheep breeds. They are well suited to the high altitudes and mountainous landscapes of New Zealand’s South Island high country, where temperatures can range from 35°C in summer to -15°C in winter. Merino is a breed of sheep famous for its fine, soft wool, and is the "gold standard" to which all other fibers are compared.

This listing is for one skein of Fingering weight yarn, as shown.

This yarn was spun on my Lendrum ST wheel in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.

This yarn will felt, so if that's not your intention, be sure to handwash your finished garment gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.

If you would like it in a center pull ball, please let me know during checkout.
