This is the perfect blend (85/15) of two very wonderful fibres. Polwarth is my all time favourite fibre to work with. Its next to skin soft and great for items such as cowls, hats, shawls and baby items because it is a finer wool and slightly delicate. It has great elasticity, resilience and drape. Pair all that with the superb qualities of silk and you have a match made in heaven. Silk is very strong and its shine is just *sigh* :D
Items made from this yarn should be handwashed. A great product for this is SOAK which you can also find in my shop. I also use it to set the twist in all my skeins.
