This simple yarn is soft on the skin and has a beautiful pearly sheen due to the mulberry silk. Lovely drape, fantastic for shawls, hats, cowls or any garment that strikes your fancy!

Each batch is unique, and there may be slight shade variations in a skein. It is recommended to introduce a new skein of yarn slowly by alternating skeins row for row.
There may be occasional excess of color and plant residue.
