Leizu DK

Named for the legendary Chinese empress who discovered silkworms, this yarn is a blend of superwash Merino and Silk. Julie Asselin's rich colours bring up the subtle sheen of this yarn and make the most of any stitch pattern.  Although it is marked as superwash wool, it is best to hand wash items made from this yarn.

This is a hand-dyed yarn, so some variation between skeins is possible.
