Spice Market, on Rustic Lux: 60% fine Merino, 15% Tibetan Yak, 15% Mulberry Silk
Inspired by gorgeous photos by one of my favorite chefs of Indian spices mixed with oils.
Ultimate luxury! Yak is comparable to cashmere in softness, is warmer than Merino, and Yak has the most beautiful earthy, natural silver tones. When dyed it creates such a lovely depth of color. Combined with the ultra fine Merino and Mulberry Silk it has a nice staple length, slight luster, strength, and the finished yarn is beyond soft with a wonderful balance of bloom and drape. This is a great fiber for beginner spinners, and spinners who want to spin something absolutely beautiful, unique, soft as a cloud, and a yarn you can’t find readily at a store (which for me is a huge reason why I spin yarn in the first place!).
