Description

Black Louet Dyed Merino/Silk Top

Color: Black

Price: $38.00 for ½ pound

One of our most popular blends, this combination is the ideal introduction to luxury fibers. A blend of 80% fine Merino with 20% natural tussah silk is a joy to spin.

Tussah is a wild silk with a beautiful natural honey color—it is lustrous and strong. Merino, the king of wool, is supersoft and lofty. This marriage complements each fiber’s weakness, creating a yarn with good combination of memory, stitch definition, drape, and a subtle sheen, and is suitable for a wide range of fine luxurious fabrics and lacework. It is a particular favorite of lace knitters that want the softness of Merino and the strength and stitch definition of silk.
