Estelle CADENZA PAINT, made in Peru


Cadenza is a concerto of colours, in which the solo is played by the fiber content and Z-twist. It is a luxurious, natural, light-weight blend of superwash extrafine Merino and naturally organic Wild Tussah Silk. Because of the tight Z-twist, Cadenza's finished fabric has a slight "purl" effect that makes its surface amazingly attractive. This yarn is suitable for hand- and machine knitting in practically all kinds of stitch patterns, from Stockinette to lace, and crochet: shawls, stoles, wraps, lace scarves, hats and caps, berets.

FYI: Tussah silk is the fiber produced by wild silk worms, and can be considered as organic. It has a wonderful feel and sheen. Naturally, it is in golden colour, and is sold in 2-ply weight that makes it perfect for shawls.

* Similar yarn: Cool Wool Seta, Silky Cashmere

TENSION: 10x10cm (4"): 30 sts / 36 rows
