Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply is a softly spun Merino wool and silk, heavy 4ply with 365m per 100g. Silk creates a beautiful sheen and merino wool lends the yarn a heavenly softness. With a rich display of colours this is luxury in a skein and an absolute treat to knit. This yarn is made with superwash merino making it suitable to wash in the machine at 30 degrees.
Due to the soft twist and high silk content of this yarn Fyberspates recommend using a 2.5mm (US 1.5) - 3.25mm (US 3) needle size, as sizes above this can increase the chances of the yarn pilling.
