Blackberry Merino/Yak/Silk

Regular price $37.84 Sale

Shopping around the Portland Farmer's Market one summer morning, I spotted one lonely pint of wild, Maine blackberries. All of its friends had already been purchased. Om nom nom!

*Please note that these are hand-dyed in small batches and colors may vary slightly from braid to braid.

A 60/20/20 blend of Merino, yak, and silk.  Merino is a fine wool, great for next-to-the skin garments. Yak down can be as fine as 13 microns! It is extraordinarily soft, very warm, with a bit of elasticity. A bit of silk adds shine and strength. Spin into a fine, warm, silky skein of fibery goodness!  Or use in a wet felting project.
