Ilmatar is a soft and luxurious 2-ply merino-silk blend yarn. Sold in 50 g skeins, it has beautiful drape while being incredibly warm.
Ilmatar is designed to be used for lace projects and accessories. It is also suitable for weaving.
Handwash strongly recommended.
These yarns are spun in Great Britain using mulesing-free South African Merino wool.
Eikus are special cases, results of trial and error, and only a limited number of skeins are available for ordering. Usually Eikus cannot be repeated exactly as photographed, but our dyeing wizards may attempt similar results. If you see an Eiku colorway which appeals to you, but the number of skeins in stock is not quite enough, let us know. We are happy to create custom colorways for you!
Order the amount you need as a custom dye job, and let us know which colorway you have in mind. Custom batches are dyed in the same pot and are guaranteed to be of the same dyelot!
