The ideal introduction to luxury blends, this Louet blend of 80% fine dyed Merino with 20% natural tussah silk is a real treat to spin. Both the merino and the silk in this blend are top-quality and a true delight to spin, producing an incredibly broad range of fabulous luxury yarns with a good combination of memory, stitch definition, drape, and a subtle sheen only silk can provide. This is a highly addictive favorite among spinners at all levels. The undyed fiber takes acid dyes beautifully and is extremely popular for dyeing and handpainting. The natural color has a slightly creamy appearance. This listing is for a ½ lb. bag.
Depending on stock levels, some fibers or yarns may need to be special-ordered, which generally takes no longer than a regular Knitgrrl Studio mail order. We will let you know if we need to order additional fiber for you or if we need to ship part of your order separately. Thank you.
