Thoreau from Crave Yarns summed up in one word? Luxury. It’s a heavenly blend of yak and mulberry silk that combine to produce an extraordinarily soft and shiny skein of yarn. Due to the fiber content, the colors are a bit more muted than other bases from Crave giving an overall appearance of being enveloped in a fine blanket of mist. While it is a true fingering weight yarn, it blooms beautifully when blocked to create full, defined stitches and a drapey fabric. One touch of this yarn will prove how impossible it is to resist!
