Smooth, excellent stitch definition

These two ultra-thin fibers, woolen spun into six plies; two plies of three ply, harmonize strength and softness to produce a yarn that drapes well and is very soft. It’s excellent with cables and designs that require better stitch definition. With woolen spun yarns the fibers go every which way trapping air producing softer warmer pieces.

The 6 ply Meribel mink yarn is great if texture and knitted-in design is important and you want the softness, comfort and warmth of the mink/cashmere.

The 4 ply Chamonix mink yarn is excellent for stockinette stitch or any kind of plain knitting - the blossoming of the yarn is just beautiful when it is all done and adds an elegant effect.
