This sport weight yarn is an inspired blend of 50% American merino wool from Shaniko Wool Company in Oregon, 25% silk, and 25% Belgian flax. The wool provides energy and bounce, the silk a subtle shine, and the flax a resilient texture. The combination makes this yarn unique and special and creates soft garments with a gentle drape. A wonderful choice for lighter sweaters, summer tees, and lace work.
**Note: Hand-dyed yarns vary from skein-to-skein and more so from batch-to-batch. We recommend that you purchase enough yarn at once to complete an entire project. Also, when using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, we recommend alternating skeins every other row to even out any differences.
