Silky Wool Yarn by Elsebeth Lavold
From Swedish designer Elsebeth Lavold comes luscious "Silky Wool" yarn.
A mix of Wool, Nylon & Silk for strength, and softness. This heathery blend of natural fibers is a great DK-weight option for your summer knitting & crochet projects. Silky Wool has a really soft drape and superb stitch definition. Beautifully crafted in Italy.
I also love to dye this yarn in store, using Jacquard Acid Dyes. Eggshell and Chalk White make great base yarns, or pick one of the colored yarns and do an overdye.
I used Chalk White to make the Cancun Lacey Boxy for a breezy summer cover up, then dip dyed it for a gradual color change.
