Polwarth/Silk DK: Persimmon
Persimmon is a rich orange semi-solid, hand-dyed on Polwarth/Silk DK.
Polwarth/Silk DK is a beautiful squishy yarn of 85% untreated (not superwash) Polwarth and 15% silk. Polwarth is a sheep breed whose wool that combines the softness of its Merino ancestors with the longer staple length of its Lincoln forebears, resulting in a lofty yarn with lovely bloom. A touch of silk gives it shimmer and a softer drape. Because it's untreated, this is a perfect yarn for sweaters, holding its shape through multiple washes.
Each skein weighs 4 oz and measures approximately 330 yards. Needle size: US 4-7. Hand wash in cool water, lay flat to dry.
