I'm trying out a new base yarn, a medium-heavy weight fingering merino/silk. The Crocus Riot, Dreaming of Spring, Summer Sky, and Stucco are this new yarn, the rest are Zephyr laceweight. The fingering is beautiful, very luxurious. It's a 4-ply, high twist yarn; 70% merino/30% silk, and has a great feel. It should wear well, and looks and feels like it has more silk than just 30%. The twist and 4 plies makes it very smooth with a great sheen.
