Scrumptious is a blend of luxurious silk and merino wool from Fyberspates. It is extremely soft to the touch and has a delicious sheen, being perfect for those special knits. It shows up well on cable designs and there are a good set of solid colours to show off lace work. The yarn comes in a range of laceweight, 4-ply, double-knit/worsted, Aran and chunky.

I am making the fingerless mittens for my sister's birthday with this yarn. Yes it is a little bit expensive, buy you certainly get what you pay for. It is soft, shiny, gives great stitch definition and I can't wait to get some more!
