80% South American Merino, 20% Chinese Mulberry Silk.
Paso Doble is pure luxury. The two strands in this lace weight yarn are closely entwined, revolving around each other like two Paso Doble dancers. Elegant yet strong just like the dance, this yarn is best used for lace projects. It can handle strong blocking due to its silk content and can bear the weight of small glass beads. The Merino makes it warm, too, so Paso Doble knits up to very elegant gloves or mitts for spring or autumn.
Paso Doble is a powerful, passionate and proud Spanish dance, inspired by bullfighting. There is a lot of elegance in the straightforward movements and the dancers’ body control.
