This breezy yarn is soft and light, making it the ultimate summer yarn. Malabrigo Susurro is 50% Mulberry silk, 25% Merino, and 25% Linen wound as a single ply into a DK/Sport weight.
The fusion of these 3 very different fibers results in an amazing depth of color, giving the yarn an almost metallic sheen. Susurro has a marvelous balance due to the sharp contrast between the crude texture of the linen and the silkiness of the Merino. It is great for shawls, scarves, accessories, lace, textured stitches, cables and lightweight garments.
Malabrigo is a family owned yarn company located in Uruguay and they have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations. Their products are made out of the softest fibers available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life. Malabrigo produces yarn because they are passionate about it. They believe in the pleasure of knitting with good-quality, carefully designed, subtly dyed yarns and in the joy of wearing whatever is made out of them. All of the wool produced in Uruguay is mulesing-free.
**Yarn is hand dyed, so you can expect variation from skein to skein. It is recommended that for larger projects in the same color, you should knit in stripes, alternating skeins every 2 rows.
