Silk Garden from Noro is a long repeat, self-striping yarn that is a blend of 45% silk, 45% mohair and 10% wool. This yarn is great for cowls, hats, gloves, sweaters, or blankets. We especially love to use two colors together in stripes or color work patterns. Each 50 gram ball has approximately 108 yards. The gauge is 18 stitches equals 4 inches on size US 7-8 (4.5 - 5 mm) needles.
