Beautiful Noro Haunui Silk combines the luxurious, completely traceable fleece from the Haunui sheep of New Zealand, and lustrous silk. Gently combed together, they create a subtle and unusual marled effect and a dimensional fabric. The marled effect is most pronounced in the darker shades of Haunui Silk and more subtle in the lighter shades. Choose a lighter, more subtle shade to showcase your stitches, and a darker, more distinct tone to add drama to simple stitch patterns
