SHIROCCO (silk-merino lace)

Listing image #180908
This 2-ply lace-weight yarn is a dream to knit with – light and smooth and oh, so soft! It’s been made in New Zealand from 50% silk and 50% merino. It has silk’s wonderful sheen, and the warmth and loft of fine merino. Knitted up, this luxurious yarn drapes beautifully – perfect for shawls.

I painted one skein in shades of paua blue, aqua, teal and silver highlights. On my monitor, the skein looks bluer than it is. I think it's more of an underwater blue-green with a tealy tinge...

110g / app. 680m

Please note that I have another colourway in this yarn available. Look at the listing for BAYAMO.

The "small" print:
My hand-dyed yarns are non-repeatable runs, which means once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Please hand wash your yarn with care. Wool labeled “superwash” you can cold machine wash. I take great care to achieve beautiful results that are lightfast and colourfast, but sometimes there is a tiny amount of colour running out of the wool at first, so wash your item separately and keep it away from other items at all times while wet. After a few washes the water should run clear.

I take commissions.

Please pay by bank transfer. Credit card option is offered for overseas customers only.

Please contact me if you live outside of New Zealand.

I will combine postage when possible.

When choosing colours please keep in mind that not all monitors show colours the same.

If you’re not satisfied with your wool you can return it to me in original condition, i. e. with label attached and at your own cost in exchange for different wool or a refund.

I’m a great believer in avoiding waste, and in recycling. That’s why I use recycled packaging materials wherever possible.

If you’re happy with your wool, please let me know and don’t forget to place feedback.
