The lace weight yarn is a luxurious blend of 55% Merino and 45% Silk, giving a subtle sheen and light drape to your finished project. A perfect yarn for lacy shawls and elegant light weight garments such as The Lady's Evening Jumper.
Each skein is hand-dyed exclusively for us by Travelknitter in one of eight stunning, jewel-like shades, created by Susan. Each colourway is named after one of her favourite classic films, featuring one of her all-time movie icons. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes stars the one and only, Marilyn Monroe as Lorelei Lee alongside the equally amazing Jane Russell. In the film Marilyn sings Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend wearing her now famous hot pink dress, the same shade as our own, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
