Minka is a precious yarn spun from Mink fiber 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 hues, and beautiful and velvety solids. This yarn is suitable for hand- and machine knitting, and gossamer crochet.

Note: Yarns made of Mink fiber are 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 it with another yarn to obtain enough strength in the finished project.
