Aurignacian - Angkor merino/silk

27.00

Aurignacian was inspired by a period in the Palaeolithic, characterized by the explosion of evidence for human creativity and symbolic expression. The cave art at Chauvet comes from this time period in our history. The deep blues blended with the sky and moss green colors are meant to reflect the cool depth of caves, and the first explorations of our ancestors into the creative mind.

Angkor is an elegant blend of 70% superwash merino, and 30% silk. The silk gives a beautiful drape to fabric, and the blend of springy merino reduces pilling. The higher twist of this yarn adds strength and ensures that the fibers retain their union. This elegant single ply works magnificently in shawls, fine sweaters, and hats.

Single ply, Fingering weight, 438 yds/400 meters, 100g

No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, it is recommended that you alternate rows to ensure more variegation and less pooling.

 My yarns are dyed with professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last against washing and sunlight.

This listing is for one skein of ready-to-ship yarn.

Superwash treated wool can, theoretically, be thrown in the washing machine on a cool setting. To maintain a long life for your garments however, I recommend that you hand wash your wool in cold water with as little agitation as possible. Squeeze out excess water (do not wring since this will damage the fibers and distort your garment), and roll in a towel or lay flat to dry, blocking if necessary. Store yarn as well as finished objects where they are safe from the harmful appetites of moths.
