  • Description

    Merino Silk Aran has 162m (175 yds) per 100g and a perfect blend of soft merino wool and mulberry silk. Merino wool has natural elasticity which helps a garment stretch yet return back to its original shape while also being warm and soft to touch. This yarn is not itchy or scratchy next to the skin. The silk gives it a shiny smooth lustre that feels soft and luxurious to work with. The merino is mulesing free and comes from South America. The yarn is 100% natural fibres and perfect for dyeing. It has a good bright colour so can be dyed in light or pastel shades. To be successful in creating bright and vibrant colours we recommend using acid or natural dyes.
