Zephyr is truly a luxury yarn.  Light and lustrous, it is made from 50% Merino wool and 50% Chinese Tussah silk.   The yarn takes on a beautiful sheen and is very popular with weavers and fiber artists. Hand knitters have also discuovered this yarn for it's softness, sheen and drapiness.

This listing for 1-lb Zephyr Cones is for the 2-ply lace weight (2/18) yarn.  The same yarn and colors are also packaged in 50-gram and 100-gram skeins.  Please see related product listings if you are interested in skeins. Zephyr also comes in worsted weight.

Washing Instructions: Dry-cleaning is recommended by Jaggerspun. Many weavers and knitters have good success with handwashing in mild soapy lukewarm water or a wool wash such as SOAK using minimal agitation and air drying. 

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
