Merino occupies one of the most exalted places in the fiber world.
Merino is a long stapled fiber with exuberant bounce and memory.
This roving blends both merino and superwash merino with silk to maximize the range of color from one dyepot.
Both the superwash and the silk enhance the sheen in this blend: the silk also adds strength.
