Maisonette is a 2-ply laceweight yarn made from a 50-50 blend of tussah silk and superfine merino wool. It glides through your fingers, buttery smooth, offering crisp stitch definition and a lovely flowing drape.
A great deal at only $42 per skein, Maisonette is available in 4 oz skeins of 1250 yards each in only the colors listed here. Perfect yardage for laceweight sweaters and shawls, and fewer ends!

Unfortunately, the price of Tussah silk has recently increased so dramatically that we are no longer able to carry this product once we have sold out. Supplies are extremely limited and unlikely to be available at this price for much longer, so order what you can NOW, before this glorious yarn is sold old.
Subtle color variations are achieved through kettle dyeing.

Hand wash gently with mild soap. We recommend washing with Eucalan in cool water, as other brands of wool wash have had adverse effects on our yarn. Lay flat to dry.
