is a mostly mink yarn with a touch of cashmere and sparkle! Minkle has a downy soft halo that is longer than that of cashmere but shorter than angora. Although a 2-ply laceweight yarn, we like to knit Minkle on US6-8 needles! As always, our guilt-free mink fibers are carefully collected through combing once a year leaving the furry lil’ critters happy and healthy.
ORIGIN: Inner Mongolia, discovered by the intrepid explorers of Jones & Vandermeer in the early 21st century.
Minkle is sold as a ball, ready to knit. Available in a variety of colors. We recently added 2 new colors: Sparkle in the Haze (which is an plum base) and Crystals in the Mine (which is a black base).
