This yarn is all about the fibre. The Merino, Alpaca and silk are combed together in a luxurious blend, and need no more decoration than a bit of twist and a good dose of colour. You can pick out the different fibres, even the different original colours of the animals, just by looking at the twisted strands and seeing the variation in the dye saturation. The result is a beautiful knitting experience. Make this part of your fibre exploration.
A note on colour: Although I do my very best to capture the colours of the yarns accurately, differences in lighting, display settings, and computer screens can affect how you see the colours represented. A good way to double check that you're getting the colour you expect is to visit the yarn's Ravelry page and check out others' pictures of the colourway you're after.
