On the Shoulders of Giants - yak/merino/nylon

27.00

Stonehenge is a 3 ply blend of 20% yak fiber, with 70% superwash merino, and 10% nylon. The naturally dark yak fibers give this yarn so much dimension and adds a complex richness to the colors it takes in. The coat of the yak is composed of three different types of fiber, but only the finest down fiber (often shed in the spring and summer months) is used here. The down ranges between 16-20 microns. Yak down will keep you warmer than sheep wool, is softer than cashmere, and has increased breathability and odor-resistance. This yarn is the perfect combination of luxury and practicality.

3 ply, Fingering weight, 437 yards/399 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.
