Superwash Madrone DK is a blend of 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Yak, and 20% Silk. This yarn is soft, very silky feeling, has a round character, and ihas a lovely sheen. Madrone starts out as a medium-light grey brown (from the Yak) and this gives a depth and muted-ness to the dyes. A lovely yarn! Skeins are approx. 280 yards and 4 oz.
