Selkino is a luxurious blend of Merino wool and silk, it's hand-dyed in the heart of Berkshire by Skein Queen and offers rich saturated colour. As a single ply, Selkino is best reserved for low-abrasion, indulgent projects such as shawls, scarves and cowls.
Yarn Weight: 4 Ply / Fingering
As will all hand-dyed yarns each skein of Selkino is unique so for larger projects it is best to alternate skeins for an even blend of colour.
The merino wool is from South America and is mulesing-free.
