Grignasco Merinosilk 25 is a soft, plied blend of shrink resistant merino and silk in a superfine laceweight. The saturated colors let your lace pattern shine. Each 25 gram ball has 384 yards - Merinosilk 25 is closer to a cobweb than a fingering. Made in Italy.
I loved working with this yarn. It feels good in your hands. The merino silk blend seems to be perfect for consistent tension. The natural springiness of wool is well balanced by the tensile strength of silk.
The color is very deep and intense. All around a pleasure to knit with.....
Not as much a pleasure to block. Although the finished lace is very beautiful, it did not hold blocking as well as I expected. I like to obsessively open lace in the blocking process - I allowed the piece to fully dry but when removed from the drying frame the piece relaxed more that I would have liked but not enough that anyone else noticed.
I will purchase this yarn again and again!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
