This fingering weight, equal parts silk and merino blend is pure luxury. The decadent texture and luster from the silk combine with the best wool to make a remarkable skein.

It's perfect for lace, shawls, accessories, and lightweight garments with drape. 

This hand-dyed yarn comes to us from Ireland. LITLG uses yarns from farms using ethical practices. They embrace slow living, care, and quality in everything they do and their gorgeous yarns reflect that in both quality and beauty.

Pure luxury is how I would describe this yarn. With it being 50% silk, it has an amazing softness and sheen. It's a real treat to the hands while knitting. 

It creates a fabric with beautiful drape. Patterns with lace shine in this yarn. It would make the most wonderful shawl or capelet to wear with your warmer weather outfits while out on the town or on a date night. 

As usual, LITLG's colors are totally stunning. Whether you get a variegated or semi-solid, the color is always rich and complex and a total feast for the eyes.
