Flamingo Croquet Superwash Merino/Cashmere/Nylon

Regular price $28.38 Sale

I love the scene in Alice in Wonderland where the Queen of Hearts challenges Alice to a game of croquet and the mallets are flamingos. Alice's flamingo is particularly uncooperative. 

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

An 80/10/10 blend of superwash Merino, cashmere, and nylon.  Merino and cashmere make this a lusciously soft fiber. Merino is a fine wool great for next to the skin garments. It has a lot of crimp, which means elasticity in a handspun yarn. Merino typically has a staple length of 2-3 inches, making it more difficult to spin for beginners. Cashmere, also a very fine fiber, is known for its softness, lightness, and warmth. Nylon adds strength and since this is a superwash fiber, you can wash it in a machine with out it felting or shrinking.

Not ideal for wet felting or needle felting projects.
