Fiber: 70% mink 20% merino 10% silk
US 3-4 (3.25mm-3.5mm)
Miya is a mix of 70% Combed Mink, 20% Merino wool and 10% Mulberry silk and is suitable for both knitting and weaving, as both warp and weft. Like Angora fibre, the mink fibre is combed gently from the mink: no animals are harmed. The combing is carried out annually to produce the best fibre. When woven or knit, it produces a wonderfully soft, warm and silky fabric.
Washing: Wash gently by hand using detergent, never soap, and a little white vinegar. Rinse thoroughly, with white vinegar in at least the last rinse. Remove excess water with a towel and lay flat to dry.
