A more robust version of their fingering weight (Breathless), Shalimar Homage DK is also domestically spun - designed for luxurious hand and incredible softness. Homage is a superwash luxury blend of merino, silk and cashmere. Supersoft Homage DK has wonderful sheen, drape and hand and is perfect for sweaters, shawls and accessories. This yarn is Stonewash dyed - a process that guarantees a garment rich in subtle color variations without worrisome pooling or color blocks. These colorways emphasize plays in light and texture in the fiber to create rich and interesting results - making cables and textured stitch patterns reproduce beautifully.
