This wonderful new Fiberlady yarn is 80/10/10 Super Wash Merino-Cashmere-Nylon. Very soft cuddly yarn. This yarn is soft and strong at the same time. Soft because the springy superwash merino is already a wonderfully soft quality fiber, and mixed with cashmere, the blend becomes even softer. Strong because the nylon element builds strength into the yarn.

This is a sock weight yarn and only 10 skeins of each color in a dye lot.

Care Instructions:

I recommend finishing knitted and crocheted pieces by laying the washed pieces out on a thick terry towel and smoothing to size and shape. I don't use pins in blocking my bamboo based items.

I recommend finishing woven pieces by washing on delicate, protecting fringes if used. Spin dry the peices and gently tumble until just damp. Hard press with an iron on the cotton/rayon setting. Future washings will just need a light ironing to remove wrinkles after drying.

This yarn has been washed in hot water after dyeing with professional fiber reactive cold process dyes. Minimal residual bleeding may be seen in very dark colors on the first wash.

The Fine Print:

Please note that I do my best to depict colors accurately in my photographs, but monitors vary as does the lighting situation in my studio from day to day.  These are hand painted yarns with the variations that are inherent in the hand painting process. Representative samples of each color are used for the photographs.
