Lotus Miya is a precious, shawl yarn spun from Mink down blended with Merino wool and Silk for strength. It is in fingering weight, uniform, and is manufactured in solid and heather colours. Miya is suitable for hand and machine knitting, and gossamer crochet.

FYI: The mink fibre is cut and combed from live animals (similar to regular brushing for cats). No animals are hurt during the production of the yarn. Yarns made of Mink hair are beautiful, extremely soft, and very delicate - mink fiber must be spun with another, stronger fiber such as wool or silk, or, if it is 100% Mink - we would suggest to combine the Mink with another yarn to obtain enough strength in the finished project.
