Blend of lace-weight Australian superfine merino wool and soft silk make a luxurious yarn that can be worn next to the skin. Besides its sensuous texture, the wool - silk blend makes it warm for winter and cool in summer.

The two fibers also absorb dyes slightly differently giving a shiny, intense color. Perfect for Estonian Haapsalu Shawls.

Weaving Yarn Tip

Mix this yarn with the Superfine Merino, 2/30 Gemstone Silk, or Douceur et Soie . Worsted spun yarns are smoother and shinier than woolen spun yarns. They also won't full as much when washed/finished, so plan on a closer sett or tighter gauge (finish your sample swatch to determine if you like the finished piece).

Knitters

Hand knitters may prefer multi-stranding this yarn for larger gauges. Three strands for a sport weight and five strands for a worsted weight. The mini cones are an ideal size for lace knitting projects.

JaggerSpun Care Instructions:

JaggerSpun is dyed with the finest dyes possible. Excess dyes may be present in some colors so sample first. If excess dye is present, skein the yarn and rinse until the water runs clear. Due to environmental concerns the dye formulas for deep purples may not be colorfast when exposed to light, so avoid prolonged exposure to bright light.
