The beautiful tonal shifts of classic Poems wool roving yarn are accented by the added sheen of silk. A blend of wool with silk gives an extra snap to the color of everything you make with Poems Silk. This yarn is comparable to Noro's Kureyon/Silk Garden. Very soft yarn! It comes in beautiful colors that naturally stripe themselves as knitted. Using this yarn would result an equivalent to garments made with Noro Kureyon/Silk Garden, absolute gauge and same effect make it a wonderful substitution to be used with the Noro patterns.
