Minka is a precious yarn spun from Mink down blended with Merino wool and Silk for strength. It is in fingering weight, millspun and is manufactured in two sets of colours: Natural, slightly mottled Undyed colours, and beautiful and velvety acid dyed solids. This yarn is suitable for hand and machine knitting, and gossamer crochet.
Garment Care: hand wash with woolwash "no rinse" or baby shampoo. Lay flat to dry, avoiding exposure to direct heat and sunlight.
For information: Yarns made of Mink hair are beautiful, extremely soft, and very delicate - mink fiber must be spun with another, stronger fiber such as wool or silk, or, if it is 100% Mink - we would suggest to combine the Mink with another yarn to obtain enough strength in the finished project.
