Susurro - a summer yarn in a class of its own. The wonderful mixture of mulberry silk, linen and the finest merino wool makes this yarn soft, airy and delicately flowing.
The fusion of these 3 very different fibers leads to an amazing depth of color, which gives the yarn an almost metallic sheen and a wonderful drape.
It is great for Shawls, scarves, accessories, lace, textured stitches, cables, lightweight garments.
In this yarn, no two skeins are exactly the same. That is why we recommend working with two balls in parallel at the same time and alternating every few rows for a more even color distribution.
Hand dyed with professional colors for wool and silk
Please note: hand dyeings are always unique.
With this yarn in particular, the colors can vary greatly, even if they come from the same dye bath.
For larger knitting pieces I therefore recommend to work with 2 skeins alternately at the same time, in order to ensure a more evenly knitting pattern.
The colors may differ slightly from the original, depending on the monitor display.
