Louisa Harding Grace knitting yarn is a beautifully soft blend of 50% Silk and 50% Wool, it knits as a standard Dk with a tension of 22sts and 30 rows to a 4" (10cm) square. Gentle hand wash only.
Delicate blends using natural fibres like silk are generally not recommended for every day wear as they may develop a halo or may pill. Pilling is generally much easier to remove from natural blends than from man-made blends though as the fibres do pull off easier. Garment shavers which are often available from hardware retailers can make a natural fibre garment look like new!
