slinkyribs.jpgElsebeth Lavold’s Silky Wool blends 45% wool, 35% silk and 20% nylon in a DK weight yarn, with a classic crinkle texture. The wool and silk take the dye slightly differently so there is a play of hues.  Since its debut in 2003, this wool-silk blend has been and continues to be a great seller.  When knit, the resulting fabric is drapey.  Shawls and summer tops are great projects.  Because it is a DK weight, it's ideal when crocheted.  Whether you crochet shells, vests, t-tops or wraps, this Elsebeth Lavold's Silk Wool is a classic look.
