Soliloquy MerinoSilk is a gorgeous blend of merino and lustrous silk. The four ends have been spun at a high twist, then plied at a lower twist. The resulting yarn is smooth, silky and lovely to knit yet very strong and hard-wearing. Soliloquy MerinoSilk is especially suitable for fine socks, gloves, lace shawls and vintage knitting designs.
