Muruk might just be THE most luxurious gradient yarn in the world! A fine blend of Mulberry Silk and Yak produces this intensely soft, lustrous, drapey yarn. Perfect for anyone who needs softer-than-soft, or with wool allergies.
The generous 700m on each 100g cake is a medium-heavy lace weight. It's amazing for lacey shawls, scarves, drapey-smooth garments..
Muruk is a beautifully hand-dyed gradient yarn with absolutely no sharp colour changes - just smooth, artful transitions.
Note that you can pull from the outside of the cake or the centre, depending on which colour you want to use first.

Hand dyed, luxury, natural yarns from Budapest, Hungary.
Zsofi's incredible gradients are completely hand dyed. In fact, that is why the colour flows are so smooth. In Bilum gradients there are no sharp colour changes.
Zsofi's magical yarns are dyed in recently expanded studio space in Budapest, Hungary. She takes her inspiration from the everyday things around her, as well as nature.
I bought 2 different colours of the Muruk Gradient, Cake, Elena Muruk and Bea Muruk.
I've used the Elena colour to knit Travelling with Friend which can be found in Ravelry .... view more The colours knitted up absolutely beautifully and can't wait to give the finished shawl as a present for Christmas. view less
I took the plunge and ordered the Fredi denim blue gradient. If you look up the Kieran Foley/Nim Teasdale "Magic Waves Triangle" on Ravelry, you will see what I have been looking ... view morefor for four years! This yarn is exquisite. It's like knitting liquid chocolate with a big warm hug. The colour gradient is the best I've ever knitted with - and I used to buy my yarn in the States for good gradients. How lucky we are to be able to buy this yarn and how lucky we are to have Tribe in our lives. Love you all. Neela view less
