"Big Sur" is an homage to one of the most beautiful places I know, on the Central coast of California, a place I can't wait to take my children to one day, when the pandemic is over. I love how the silk in this yarn brings out deep blues, greens, and purples.
This yarn base, Facet, is a luminous fingering/sock weight yarn, spun as a single from 70% superwash merino, and 30% silk. It's perfect for delicate, drapey, knits. I love the luxurious feel and luminous sheen the silk gives this yarn, as well as the way it picks up color most deeply on the outside layer of the yarn, lending deep variation to the dyed strand. 438 yds, 100g. Hand wash, dry flat. (Even though the fiber is superwash merino, I'd hand wash because singles need more gentle care.)
