Merino Wool is known for its resilience and elasticity. It is strong, sturdy and will keep you warm even when wet.
Alpaca has a wonderfully soft, buttery hand and a soft halo. It is strong, supple and provides beautiful drape.
Silk provides luster, warmth and adds drape to your fabric.
This yarn is good for projects that will be worn next to the skin because it is so wonderfully soft. Try it for cozy shawls, wraps, fingerless mitts, hats, scarves, cowls and more.
