Zéphir - Merino-Silk
This unique blend of natural fibers produces a light and shiny yarn. Composed of 50% fine merino wool and 50% Tussah silk, this yarn is really very refined.
As wool and silk are dyed differently, the yarn made from this mixture may have, in some shades, a slightly "tweedy" appearance and show neps, that is to say occasional small clumps of silk.
