Elegant and refined, Fino is everybody's favourite. It combines the softness of merino wool with the lustre of silk in a lightweight yarn that is perfect for shawls and accessories. Tussah Silk is used in this blend, produced by silk worms that feed on oak and similar tree leaves, rich in tannins that give the fibre a gorgeous golden tone. The colours in the Fino range are so beautiful due to its special dye process that yields complex, subtle, tonal colours.
See Tal from Morris & Sons talk about Fino. She started helping her mother, Ruth Morris back in their first tiny craft store in Rose Bay (Sydney suburb). Now 45 years later Tal is an authority on yarns after helping thousands of customers with every type of project imaginable.
