65% spun silk, 35% linen
249 yards (228 meters) per 100 grams
5-6 stitches per inch on US 5-7/3.75-4.5 mm
$32 per 100g skein - dyed in a batch of 4 skeins (3/100g & 1/75g)
This is, hands-down, one of my favorite bases. Yes, because I love linen for sure, but also because the blend of silk and linen enables a heathered texture and color, making the look and feel both rustic and luxurious at the same time. This color is almost indescribable. It's not exactly a brown, but neither is it grey. It would go well with neutrals as well as brights, not an easy feat to pull off!
