Elegant and refined, Fino is everybody's favorite.  It combines the softness of merino wool with the lustre of silk in a lightweight yarn. Tussah Silk is used for this blend,  produced by silk worms that feed on oak and similar tree leaves, rich in tannins that give the fiber a gorgeous golden tone.
The colors in Fino's shade card are so beautiful due to its  special dye process that yields complex, subtle, tonal colors.
