This is a great blend if you prize softness and shine. The high silk content brings both of these characteristics into play, with the Merino wool contributing its signature softness along with wool's versatile bounce. The 50/50 split of protein and cellulose fibres makes this yarn a great choice for Spring and Fall. The two different fibre types take the dye differently, so there is a subtle shift in the colour saturation, giving the finished piece a wonderful depth.
A note on colour: Although I do my very best to capture the colours of the yarns accurately, differences in lighting, display settings, and computer screens can affect how you see the colours represented. A good way to double check that you're getting the colour you expect is to visit the yarn's Ravelry page and check out others' pictures of the colourway you're after.
