Soft Like a Cloud, Tough as Steel

We carry or have carried yarns made from all kinds of different materials. Wool of course and acrylic, but also cotton, linen, silk, hemp, bamboo, cashmere, angora (both rabbit and goat), alpaca, camel, and llama. We've even had sugar cane and milk.

Don't ask me how you can make yarn from milk.

There's even a category of yarn called "other fibres". I don't know what plant or animal that comes from.

All those things are soft, just what you want from a yarn.

So how surprised am I to realize that we also have a yarn made with stainless steel. And it's not used for scrubbing pots.

In fact, mixed with merino wool its soft and lovely, perfect for an airy shawl or tunic.

Don't ask me how to do they do that either. Apparently steel is strong enough to make towering structures and soft enough to wrap a baby in. Who knew?
