Venezia Sport - Roman Stripe Scarf


 I've always loved Merino and Silk - such a lovely combination of fibers.  You get the memory of wool with the shine and drape of silk.  Not to mention, it's super soft and something I can actually wear near my skin.  
Venezia Sport is a luscious blend of 70% Merino Wool and 30% Mulberry Silk.  It is a great weight to wear in the Pacific Northwest all but the warmest few weeks.  There are over 300 yards per 100 gram skein - so a one skein project was definitely a possibility.  As an added bonus, this stitch pattern creates a reversible pattern!
