JaggerSpun 4/8 Wool-Silk DK Yarn *Special order only description:
A blend of Australian super fine merino wool and soft silk makes this yarn ideal for luxury products that can be worn next to sensitive skin. Besides it's sensuous texture the wool/silk blend makes it warm for winter and cool in summer. The two fibers absorb dyes slightly differently giving a shiny intensely deep color. As a worsted spun yarn you'll fine they are smoother and shinier than woolen spun yarns.
They also won't full as much when washed/finished, so plan on a closer sett or tighter gauge (finish your swatch to determine if you like the finished piece). JaggerSpun is dyed with the finest dyes possible. Excess dyes may be present in some colors so sample first. If excess dye is present, skein the yarn and rinse until the water runs clear. Deep purples may not be colorfast when exposed to sun, so avoid prolonged exposure to bright light.
All color swatches are shown in finer weight Zephyr 2/18 Wool silk, same fiber and colors, different gauge.
While a large cone may seem expensive, remember this is the equivalent of over nine 50 gm skeins. It is a great value for Silk/Merino.
