Henry's Attic Nassau
Nassau is a favorite summertime luxury yarn, in smooth and shiny silk and combed cotton. It drapes like a dream, but keeps its shape better than pure silk, and is breathable enough for summer tees and lightweight scarves and wraps. The glossy sheen is beautiful in the natural warm ivory, but will of course be brilliant if you choose to dye it. Procion MX will dye both the cotton and the silk nicely, and if you desire more depth of color, dying with acid dye will "boost" the saturation of the silk.
