The Vatican

The Vatican

6 skeins available ~

While visiting Rome, I was able to go on a guided tour of the Vatican. We walked through the museum as well as the church. It's truly incredible. The sculptures, tapestries, tile floor, paintings, the Sistine Chapel (where photos are not allowed, and noise is monitored)...everything is breathtakingly beautiful. I saw so much, and I am also sure I missed so much. The attention to detail is remarkable. It was an amazing experience. I took this photo inside St. Peter's Basilica, the church in Vatican City.

This yarn base is VERY soft and thin. They feel like a silk blend, but it's the super fine superwash merino that is so dreamy and soft. With a micron count of 19.5, and 20% nylon, these skeins are great for items you want to have a lovely drape; shawls, blankets, scarves, sweater, cardigan, etc. I love the smooth look of 4-ply sock weight, which also adds some extra strength. If you want to try it but don't like thin yarn, try two strands held double for a lovely DK weight.
