Malabrigo Silky Merino - this delightfully drapey favorite is a hand dyed and incredibly soft DK weight single-ply yarn in a sumptuous blend of 50% silk and 50% merino that is absolutely a treat to knit and a joy to wear. The combination is soft, smooth, and itch-free even on the most sensitive skin. The silk content gives the yarn a bit more weight and drape than a pure merino, and a slight sheen that is absolutely gorgeous. The fibers take dye a little differently, adding extra depth to the wide selection of semi-solid, variegated, and watercolor-multi colorways available.
Great for: next to skin garments, accessories, shawls, cables, colorwork, textured stitches and lace.
Please Note: Malabrigo Silky Merino is dyed in small batches and ships to us in bags of 10. As with all hand dyes, there can be great color variation from skein to skein even within the same bag. For this reason, many Malabrigo colors no longer have dye batch lots printed on the label. When working on projects requiring more than one skein it is always recommended to alternate skeins as you work. We take special pride and care with hand dyes when packing multiple skein orders to ship more compatible skeins together, whether or not they may have come out of the same bag or have the same dye batch printed on the label. As each skein is unique, skeins will never be a perfect match and there may be differences between the photos shown and yarn you receive.
