"MerinoSilk 800” is a worsted yarn spun and dyed in Italy. It consists of 75 percent ultra-fine merino wool and 25 percent mulberry silk.
The fibre fineness of the merino wool used is 17.5 microns which means that it falls under the finest category of wool there is, i.e. "ultrafine". Even though “Ultrafine” is just 3 microns finer than “extra fine” wool, you can certainly feel the difference immediately on the skin. This top quality fibre makes the yarn softer and smoother.
MerinoSilk 800 comes with an optimal yardage (800m / 100g) and its wonderful blend of Argentinian mulesing-free merino wool and mulberry silk is perfect for all kinds of year- round projects from tops to fine accessories. The ultra fine merino wool gives the knit high elasticity and a considerably good isolating and permeability feature. The silk content ensures a subtle sheen, a fresh feeling and high durability.
The yarn is available undyed and untreated in pearl white. It is very suitable for dyeing.
