ShibuiKnits Staccato is a delicious blend of Merino and silk with a touch of nylon for strength. It is available in bright, hip colors and it has a slight sheen. Staccato is a great choice for socks, but it would also be spectacular in any fine-gauge project including color work and lace. Each 50 gram skein is 65% superwash Merino, 30% silk, 5% nylon, 191 yards and knits at 7.5 stitches to the inch. Hand wash and dry flat. Made in Peru.
