This is Filatura di Crosa Superior in shade #123, Viola and, as the name suggests it is a beautiful violet mauve.
Superior is 70% Cashmere, 25% Schappe Silk and 5% Extra FIne Merino and is hand wash. There are 330 yards per 25g ball. It knits on US #4 needles at 6 stitches to the inch or on finer needles for lace. This is an expensive yarn but a little goes a long way. One ball will make a lacy scarf and 3 balls will make a sweater
