This lovely blend of silk and merino almost glows, and it is deliciously soft. The fabric created has a wonderful drape, making it the perfect yarn for that special shawl or scarf. We recommend patterns with both knit and purl stitches to keep the single ply from pilling. The Aran weight means that your projects will work up quickly, and even very open lace patterns will be warm and luxurious. It would make a decadent, indulgent blanket to snuggle under, but you would probably never want to get up again. Catnip is a truly special yarn.
