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. We use Tussah silk, produced by worms that feed on oak and similar tree leaves, rich in tannins that give it a beautiful golden shine. Silk Bend is a single-ply yarn that knits up clean and with a wonderful stitch definition.
