Ashford Silk Merino Sliver

: Juniper 098
Add to Wishlist

A sumptuous fiber blend of fine New Zealand Merino and Mulberry Silk. The smooth, lofty texture of the Merino and the luster and drape provided by the silk makes this a truly luxurious blend. Create fine, lacy, and lightweight yarn for knitting or unique semi-worsted yarns for weaving.

Available in 3.5oz/100g and 17.6oz/500g bundles. When ordering multiples of either size the fiber will be packaged in multiple packages, not as one package containing one continuous piece of roving.
