Zephyr yarn from Jaggerspun is made from equal percentages of Merino wool and Chinese Tussah silk. This unique combination of natural fibers creates a yarn that is lightweight and lustrous. It is a truly elegant yarn. The yarn is made in the US.
This yarn does not felt well when agitated. It will full when washed, so do not sett it too tightly in the reed, and beat lightly when weaving. You really want to enjoy the soft drape of this yarn. Dry Clean or wash gently in cool water.
Each mini cone contains 1.5 oz of yarn (total weight=2.5 oz including the cone). 2/18 lace weight, approximately 470 yards per cone. We recommend a sett of 15-24 depending on weave structure. See this chart for further information about recommended setts.
