Silk Blend is a classic and elegant yarn, it has the unbelievable softness of merino extrafine (non superwash) and the subtle glow of raw silk. The depth of the colors are incredibly rich!
Tussah silk, which is produced by worms that feed on oak and similar tree leaves, and is rich in tannins gives it a beautiful golden shine.
Silk Bend is a single ply yarn that knits up beautifully and has wonderful stitch definition.
The reviews about this yarn are extraordinary!
