Silk AND Cashmere!? Svelte is a superwash merino/cashmere/silk fingering blend with a decadent feel and a light, airy hand. Svelte makes a beautiful fabric at a variety of gauges. Its light, round twist and soft airy feel makes it a dream to knit and a breeze to wear.  Its feather weight make it an excellent option for those of you in warmer climates or for a gorgeous lace summer shawl. Svelte gets its shine from the silk, its drape from the cashmere and its color from the Super Wash Merino.  This yarn has it all!!!

The Svelte base is available as an Evolution, as a Self-Striping, and as Semi-Solid shades designed to coordinate with each colorway.
