Merino extrafine, mulberry silk and the colour gradients, which in some places let the light original colour of the yarn shimmer through - Seidenstrasse/Silk Road is a dream yarn come true as in the fairy tales of a thousand and one nights.

I could imagine that this yarn would actually have been traded on the Silk Road at that time, in any case it is very much in demand among Asian knitters and weavers, because they recognize the quality of this silk blend.

Silk has special climatic properties, absorbs water and creates coolness during evaporation - Silk Road is a year-round yarn.

A shawl made of this yarn will warm you on cool summer evenings, and in winter you will enjoy its soft drape.

Combine Seidenstrasse/Silk Road with the color gradiant yarn Seidenstrasse Color of this yarn as you wish. Each project is your own work of art.

This is QUALITY WOOL! If you’ve never knit with it, you SHOULD! Absolutely great seller. Beautifully packaged, and a generous gift when her supplier (not she) delayed the order! Anything Martina sells is worth the money and the wait! Thanks, Martina!

The yarn quality and colours are stunning! The colours of the yarn are pretty acurately desplayed in the pictures; they are not any brighter in reality but rather muted. I'm excited to see how it knits :)
