Great Adirondack Bloomin' Silk Tweed is a very soft mulberry silk and Blue-Faced Leicester blend with a slight sheen that's intended to mimic a handspun. The slubs in this worsted weight yarn are not imperfections, but are part of the yarn's beauty! Bloomin' Silk Tweed is plied to create soft floats of 2 different colors - one silk and one wool - wrapping around each other for a unique look in hand painted yarn. Hand painted and spun in the U.S.A.
Note: The manufacturer's recommended gauge of 3.5 sts to 1" will produce a loose, open fabric. If a different fabric is desired, we recommend experimenting with different needle sizes.
