Our iconic Thesis Fade; you may know the story already! For several months straight I sat in a room lined with bookcases filled ceiling to floor with PhD theses while in the final stages of studying for mine. I would look at all the coloured bindings and at times despair that I would never get there. Spoiler: I did! These colours reminded me of those hefty bindings.

You will receive 5 skeins of 100g each, totalling 500g and 1750m of yarn.

Our new Reunion Merino Silk Sport weight (traditional 5ply weight; between a fingering and a DK) is a lovely smooth and glossy yarn of 50% Superwash Merino and 50% Silk. At 350m or 383 yds per 100g skein this is a Sport weight yarn but of course can be used in fingering weight or DK weight patterns by changing up or down needle sizes.

This yarn is beautiful, versatile and perfect for Australian conditions. With a medium twist, the pill factor on this yarn is low…and the silk gives a lovely gloss as well as strength.
