Milky Way is spun from a luxurious blend of milk protein and merino wool. It has fantastic drape and a beautiful sheen. It wears cool so it is perfect for garments in warmer climates. The generous yardage means you can make sweaters from only 2-3 skeins for most sizes. We love Milky Way for camisoles, tops, shawls, scarves, jewelry, and even dresses.
