Sophisticated and soft, DK weight Papyrus is a versatile warmer weather yarn. The texture has the appearance of being slightly wavy, which gives an understated visual interest to the finished fabric. This is one fancy yarn! Papyrus is a blend of cotton and silk, and the silk component adds a luxury to the look and feel of this yarn. Projects made in this fiber will have nice drape, but not overly so, because there's still a nice "bite" to the yarn.
