Gloss Add to My Favorites
"Gloss" from Knit Picks is a warm blend of 70% Merino wool and 30% silk and is available in muted colors. This yarn has a cushiony feel when made into socks and also works well for lace scarves and shawls. The silk gives this hand washable yarn a subtle sheen.

I made a top with the yarn, using size 6 needles to the gauge 18 sts. It was nice to work with. But after wetting it for blocking it stretched badly. I turned it inside out and dried for several minuted in the drier on low setting, so it shrank to about right size, then steam-blocked it and let it dry. I am really satisfied with the end result, though. I would buy it again. The top (short sleeved, size M) took just over three skeins.
