Lichen Merino/Yak/Silk

Regular price $35.48 Sale

Lichen is pretty magical if you ask me.  Algae and fungi living together in perfect harmony.  According to the National Park Service, the oldest still living lichens are 8,600 years old!  WHAT!?!  Incredible.

*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.
