SILKY DK is a perfect blend of soft merino wool and mulberry silk. Merino wool has a natural elasticity which helps a garment stretch yet it returns back to its original shape while also being warm and soft to touch. Not itchy or scratchy for sensible skins. The silk gives it a shiny smooth lustre that feels soft and luxurious to work with.
