Wispy Tern is a soft and skinny blend of wool and tussah silk. The yarn’s muted palette—think vintage painted photographs—results from the way in which the different fibers absorb dye. The wool portion colors thoroughly, but the silk is barely tinted. It’s good for socks, scarves, mitts, hats, and any sweater that loves a little drape.
