Berroco Ginkgo is a supremely soft silk and wool blend in a worsted weight. The plied silk and wool strands take up the dye differently, resulting in a lovely heathered look. Ginkgo is a great choice for warm, next-to-skin garments and accessories.
Mitzi whipped up the Starfighter Slouch Hat and Good Time Fingerless Mitts with just two skeins of Ginkgo (1.2 skeins for the hat, .8 of a skein for the mitts). Patterns are available on ravelry.
