Jaggerspun Zephyr 2/18 - Laceweight - 1 lb Cones
Zephyr is truly a luxury yarn. Light and lustrous, it is made from 50% Merino wool and 50% Chinese Tussah silk.
This listing for 1-lb Zephyr Cones is for the 2-ply lace weight (2/18) yarn. We also provide the same yarn on 100-gram cones and 50-gram skeins.
We do not stock a large number of full 1-lb cones. We can normally get any listed color to you within 7 days.
Zephyr has had a significant price increase in 2021. In additions, some of the colors have been discontinued. Discontinued colors that we still have in stock will have an asterisk after the color.

The dyed silk is not as resistant to fading as the wool; it is recommended that items made with the yarn not be exposed to strong natural or artificial light for long periods
