Mirasol's "Sulka" is a heavy worsted fiber consisting of 60% merino wool, 20% alpaca and 20% silk which adds sheen to this heathery looking yarn. A soft fiber with earth tones shades as well as some lively hues, "Sulka" is crafted in a remote area of Peru and has pattern support from designer Jane Ellison. This blend works well for pullovers, skirts, cardigans, hoodies, toys, high slippers, afghans and throws.

Deliriously soft and luxurious! It works up nicel; clear cables (although they are not as crisp as a 3+ply merino). Great for beginning knitters, as it evens out the stitches as you work them... you don't have to worry about making each stitch at the perfect tension. Try it, you won't regret it! Oh... and the colors are amazing!

Luxurious wool, even cheap considering its "special" blend. Colours are gorgeous, I choose n.202 (lime) and all the beauty of its threads is in it: you can see the shiny silk, as well as the soft spun of the alpaca wool...Really beautiful.
