Description: Merino Silk Lace has a construction of 2/16nm giving a generous 800m (874 yds) per 100gms. Merino Silk Lace is a perfect 2-ply blend of soft merino wool and mulberry silk. Merino wool has a natural memory which helps a garment stretch yet return back to its original shape and naturally insulates against the cold meaning the thinnest of garments provide a thermal layer of warmth when needed. The merino fibres in this yarn are 21 micron in diameter making them soft to the skin and the silk gives it a shiny smooth lustre and feel making it luxurious to work with.

The yarn is 100% animal fibre and perfect for dyeing. The yarn is a bright white colour and would dye up well in subtle light shades or bright and vibrant colours. For bright vibrant colours we recommend using acid or natural dyes.
