18/2 50% Merino/50% Tussah Silk available in 100 g cones – 1,100 yds/cone.
This unique combination of natural fibres provides yarn that is lightweight and lustrous. Equal percentages of fine Merino wool and Chinese Tussah silk are joined to create a truly elegant yarn.
Because wool and silk accept dyes differently, the fabric made from this yarn may have a slightly “tweedy” look.
