HiKoo Simplinatural Yarn - Eggplant 140
This Baby Alpaca, Fine Merino Wool, and Mulberry Silk blend is a super soft blend. It knits into a drapable, wearable fabric that has just a hint of sheen from the Mulberry Silk content.
This yarn has a 6-ply, cable construction, meaning that there are 6 plies, which were first plied into 2 ply strands, and then 3 of the 2 ply strand were plied together. This distinct construction adds excellent stitch defintion, and makes for a very dense, round yarn. Beautifully rounded 6-ply strands mean your knitting will have a cushy feel with excellent stitch definition. This construction shows off cabled projects beautifully.
Try this uniquely plied yarn in projects that will really show off your knitting and crochet prowess!
