Jagger Spun Zephyr 4/8 Wool/Silk by the ounce
This unique combination of natural fibers provides a yarn that is lightweight and lustrous. Equal percentages of fine Merino Wool and Chinese Tussah silk are joined to create a truly elegant yarn.
Because wool and silk accept dyes differently, the fabric made from this yarn may have a slightly “tweedy” look in some shades and you may find the occasional silk nep.
Due to the difficulties inherent in dyeing fiber with this high silk content, some shades may be less resistant to fading in light and water than 100% wool, and some colors will bleed, particularly with high contrast colors together. We recommend that pieces are dry cleaned, especially for weavers.
This yarn is sold in one-ounce weights, with approximately 70 yards per ounce. To order more than one ounce, simply place an order for multiple items of this product.
