Phaesant

$55.00

This yarn is a truly interesting blend.  Wool blended with tencel is pretty common.  Tencel gives a shimmer similar to silk but at a lower cost.  But this yarn also has 10% milk fiber and 10% banana.  There were a few independent dyers carrying this blend a while back but I haven't seen any recently.  The yarn is beautiful and strong so there are no use issues.  I think the problem was the cost or the availability of those special fibers - particularly the milk.

Our yarn is wound into hanks. If you would like us to wind the yarn into balls for easier knitting or weaving, please let us know. We are happy to provide this service at no charge. Please note this may require cutting the yarn if the hank has too many yards to be wound into a single ball.
