This yarn is the same as the older 100g hanks of Manos Silk Blend, just half as much. This is a truly beautiful, opulent yarn. 70% extrafine Merino wool, 30% silk, they recommend 3.5-4.5mm needles with a tension of 22-24 st per 10cm but at first glance it looks as thick as an aran weight wool. It comes in a range of jewel-like solid colours and more muted variagated shades. It will make a splendid garment. Each hank is individually dyed, so there are no dyelots. We try to make sure that multiple hanks are as similar as possible but they do recommend that if you are knitting a larger garment then you work from two hanks alternately, knitting two rows from each hank to blend the shades together.
