Bikini Atoll is a variegated yarn of brilliant aqua blue with splashes of magenta and hints of teal, purple and white. Base yarn is Silken Sheath.
58% Australian superwash merino, 42% silk
DK/8ply weight, single ply construction
With a silken glow shining through a soft halo, this yarn feels wonderful to wear next to the skin. The dyes appear almost metallic on this yarn. The slight slubbiness due to the single ply construction adds textural interest. Merino wool is well known for its warmth and elasticity, whilst the silk provides strength and shine. One skein of yarn is enough for a small to medium shawl/wrap or a hat. Care: Hand wash only. Please note: the construction process of this yarn requires a knot or two in the skein, however they are easily spliced/felted to create an invisible join.
