Silk Wrapped Merino Wool
How gorgeous is this yarn! Four strands of merino wool is wrapped in a super fine black silk thread. Wrapping of the wool with the black silk allows the colours to show in a subtle way in between each other. The effects are fabulous and very special.
The yarn has a good stretch and is perfect for making a garment or a bag. Is lovely also in weaving - can be used as a warp or weft yarn with great effect.

This is by far my favourite fiber from all the ones I've ever knitted. I was very happy to find it at the ORA Fabulous Fibres store since my LYS doesn't sell it any longer. Even though it came from the other side of the world, the delivery was good and the owner a pleasure to deal with. I strongly recommend this store.
Thank you Diane. It makes me very happy to know that you love our beautiful yarns! x
Perfect order! I can't wait to start working with this!
Shipped and arrived super quickly. Exactly as described. Would definitely shop from again :)
Just what I wanted! The owner was so helpful and nice. I would absolutely recommend this shop and product.
