In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge

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.
