Fern Gully was one of my favorite movies growing up.  Along the same lines as Captain Planet, it stressed the importance of taking care of the earth and its inhabitants.  And showed in a not-so-subtle way the effects of clear cutting the rain forest.  Also, Robin Williams as the voice of Batty was A+.

A 50/50 blend of yak and silk.

Yak down can be as fine as 13 microns! It is extraordinarily soft, very warm, with a bit of elasticity. Silk adds shine, strength, and a little bit of length to your drafting zone when spinning.  Spin into a fine, warm, silky skein of fibery goodness! An amazing choice for next to the skin garments.
