Eleanor Rigby -- 4-ply 50/50 silk/superwash merino -- Silk Sheep
Silk Sheep is Cedar Hill Farm Co.'s most luxuriously blended yarn, featuring pure silk and soft, washable merino. There's something sinful about silk and merino that makes you want to touch it, squeeze it, and wear it always.
This 4-ply fingering weight is comprised of pure, all-natural silk and superwash merino, which gives it both a crisp stitch definition and a luxurious drape. The superwash characteristic means that whatever you create will be more washable and more wearable than your standard merino yarns. Few dyers offer so much yardage per skein as this--enough for a standard shawl!
