The swooning begins just rows into knitting this uniquely luxurious creation. The yarn begins to bloom and you begin to develop a tendency to sit mindlessly stroking the glorious fabric that falls from your needles. Yes, this is knitting heaven—and it is guilt free! The minks that are the source of this remarkable handspun yarn are sheared once a year and live the healthy, stress-free lives necessary for them to produce thick, lustrous coats year after year. The resulting fabric is reminiscent of fur, but is finer, softer, lighter and uniquely malleable in a way that invites the wearer to explore its vast styling potential. So go ahead, knit yourself a mink!
