Looking for a lusciously soft, single-ply DK yarn that's a pleasure to knit with and wear? Say hello to Silky Merino from Malabrigo! This sumptuous blend of 50% silk and 50% merino wool is everything you could hope for in a DK weight yarn - smooth, drapey, and itch-free. Perfect for garments, shawls, and other next-to-your-skin items like cowls and scarves. The silk content gives the yarn a bit more weight and drape than a pure merino, and a slight sheen that is absolutely gorgeous. The fibers take dye a little differently, adding extra depth to the wide selection of semi-solid, variegated, and watercolor-multi colorways available. So whether you're looking to add some cables or texture stitches to your next project, or want to try your hand at colorwork or lace, Silky Merino from Malabrigo is the perfect choice! Just be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag.
