A high quality 4-plied yarn that excells in its wearing properties with a sophisticated appearance. Its composition of merino, silk and ramie gives it a slight satin shine, adding its looks to the rich but soft natural color palette.
It is scrumptiously soft to handle, does not itch and can easily be worn next to the skin, feeling light to the touch and with excellent breathing capacities. The knit fabric it has a wonderful drape, yet possessing a clear stich definition.
An extremely versatile yarn for any project ranging from cables&lace, textured patterning, shawls, cardigans, tops and jumpers. Great for the best-loved socks you will wear for ever and never want to take off except for washing.
The base yarn that we use is a fair trade non – nylon yarn from the German/Italian company Pascuali, who have now started to get their first yarns GOTS certified. Paul Pascuali is the owner and sets a very high standard to create ethically, socially and sustainably sourced high end luxury yarns, cutting out the trade and directly benefiting a better future for animals, farmers and the earth alike.
