It's Fiber! Not Fur!

We have a fun new yarn in that is so so so so soft. You won't believe it. It's mink (Make Mine Mink). The fiber is combed from the minks, they are not harmed for the fiber. We have three colors in and are awaiting the fourth color we ordered. We all have been petting it whenever we walk by the carousel it's on.

Karen is knitting up a hat using this and the Kashmir yarn (65% cashmere, 35% silk). Early reports are that the mink yarn is a bit fragile so you have to carry another strand along when you knit it to give it strength.

Make Mine Mink: 120 yards, 100% Handspun Mink, $29
Kashmir: 110 yards, 65% cashmere, 35% silk, $25 This is pure luxury. That's for sure!
