Silky Me by El Robledal de la Santa are wonderful fingering weight skeins, ideal for knitting from shawls to sweaters.
These skeins hand-dyed in Extremadura, Spain, are made of 75% extra-fine merino wool and 25% mulberry silk.
Extra-fine merino wool is one of the finest and delicate that you can find, soft and suitable for all kind of skins. One of the main features of merino wool is its thermoregulatory capacity, which makes it perfect for all seasons of the year.
Mulberry silk is a thin and contiguous thread from the cocoons of silkworms fed with mulberry leaves. This high-quality silk is light, smooth, and shiny, with a flake-dree surface and therefore very nice in contact with the skin. Due to this same characteristic, it creates slippery threads with an elegant drape. Although it may not seem like it, because of its fine delicacy, silk is one of the strongest and most durable threads. Also, due to its low conductivity, silk keeps warm air close to the skin, so it will keep you very warm in winter.
So, Silky Me skeins by El Robledal de la Santa are not only pretty, but the union of extra-fine merino wool and mulberry silk will make your clothes the warmest of your closet.
Among this El Robledal de la Santa line's skeins, you can find solid and bright colors and skeins with several tones and subtle speckles.
Amid all Silky Me colorways, there is one that it's fascinating: the Lucky Dip. With the aim of not leaving dye residues in the dyeing water, allowing it to be reused and thus not contaminating the environment, when the guys from El Robledal de la Santa finish dyeing a batch of color if there are residues of dye in the water, they submerge the necessary skeins to absorb the remaining dye. This way, magical and unique skeins are born, with a special colorway different in each dye lot: the Lucky Dip.
Lucky Dip of Silky Me by El Robledal de la Santa are perfect for knitting one skein projects, like socks (oh, yeah, socks: silk is nature's nylon!), gloves, or shawls like Storm Shawl by Joji Locatelli.
