Elemental Affects Civility Sport Hi-Twist Yarn uses U.S. Merino fleece and imported silk. The two fibers really play "Civilly" together -- hence the name. With just enough silk to the fine Merino fleece, Elemental Affects has produced a yarn that is both luxurious and strong, while remaining soft and squishy! The added silk really gives a beautiful drape to this cowl.
Although a blended yarn, we still consider it to be breed-specific -- with bling! Using a U.S. grown Merino wool sourced through a top processor for it's consistency, availability, length and (for softness) micron count. For sheen and luxury, 30% Mulberry silk does the trick.
Homegrown, hand-dyed and spun in the U.S.A.
