This unique blend of natural fibres produces a light, shiny yarn. Composed of 50% fine merino wool and 50% Tussah silk, this yarn is truly very refined.
As wool and silk dye differently, the thread from this mixture may have, in some shades, a slightly "tweedy" appearance and present neps, i.e. occasional small piles of silk.
