Heritage Silk takes the natural softness of Merino wool and combines it with a hint of silk. The silk gives the yarn drape and a smooth surface with a slight sheen that would give good definition to knit-and-purl patterns. Heritage Silk would make great socks, but don't limit it to that! It could also be used in wonderful scarves, baby clothes, and fine-gauge sweaters. Weavers should also consider this yarn for soft, warm woven scarves.
Heritage Silk comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
