This yarn is a weaving Secret Weapon! It fulls beautifully because of its Merino Wool content, and also has the lustre and strength of Silk. It combines the bounce and elasticity of wool with the soft lustre of silk. If you've been thinking about incorporating shrinkage and fulling into your work, consider this rather than 100% Wool. It's a lightweight, suitable for weaving or machine knitting, and is a favourite in The Silk Weaving Studio weaving. This is the lightweight version of our 10-056.
