Looking for a little luxury? Our Exotica base is a divine combination or soft Merino Wool, Yak and glossy Silk. The natural grey/brown from the yak when mixed with the White Merino and Silk adds a natural depth to the finished dyed yarn. It would be wonderful in a garment where you want good stitch definition as the constuction and fibre content of the yarn gives it a nice bouncy but smooth twist. Perfect!
Weight: DK/Light Worsted/8ply
Fibre: 60% Superwash Merino, 20% Silk, 20% Yak
Length: Approx. 212m (231yds), 100g (3.5 oz)
This listing is for 1 x 100g skein. Each skein is slightly different from the next even though they were dyed together. If using more than one skein I suggest alternating skeins.
HOW To LOOK After ME
I am dyed with colour fast acid dyes. I recommend hand washing all hand knits to keep them looking their best but you can machine wash on a gentle wool cycle with mild detergent. Cold to tepid water and minimal agitation is best. Lay me flat in the shade to dry.
