Note from Sundara...I have lots to tell you about today's yarn.

First, the color. The west coast has had an extremely wet April and I've spent a lot of time looking at cherry blossoms against grey skies. While this isn't quite what I was hoping for this spring, the color combination proved to be gorgeous and is the inspiration for today's color. This photo obviously isn't of a spring storm with the grey skies and cherry blossoms, but it was the closest I could find.

Second, the yarn! I haven't had a fingering merino cashmere nylon blend in probably two years because I got fed up with the mill I got the yarn from. I also always sort of had an issue with that yarn because I felt, like I mentioned yesterday, that the nylon gave it a slight plastic feel that I didn't like. But I'm pretty picky about these things, so I offered it because so many of you loved it.

Enter my new yarn supplier. They mill most of their yarn in Italy and they have a fingering merino cashmere nylon blend yarn that doesn't feel plastic-y AND feels softer and more luxurious than the old fingering merino cashmere even though it has less cashmere. 

But, the skeins are only 100 grams and 383 yards, which means you'll probably need more than 1 skein for a smaller project. I know a lot of you loved the bigger 150 gram/500 yard skeins of fingering merino cashmere, so I realize that isn't ideal.

Still, I figure some sort of fingering merino cashmere is better than no fingering merino cashmere, so we'll name this "Italian fingering merino cashmere" to differentiate it from the old fingering merino cashmere and you'll have to let me know what you think.

Just a few batches available and yarn will ship late next week. I'm really behind on mailing yarn.

Spun in Italy from merino sheep that were not subject to mulesing. Gently hand was in tepid water for project longevity. Orders for 2 or more skeins will be matched as closely as possible.
