Mink Yarn

Here is the mink yarn. It is so very beautiful, and so soft to the touch it is like touching air. They do have colors, however, I chose the "natural". I can't imagine have mink yarn that is pink.

The yarn is real mink fiber blended with fine quality Mongolian cashmere, and it was developed by Great Northern Yarns in August of 2008. The yarn has wonderful properties, and knitting stimulates blossoming of the mink and cashmere fibers. The yarn can be washed before or after knitting.

No Animals are harmed making this yarn.

It is DK weight, with 5.5 stitches per inch on #6 needles.

I have 2 skeins that I treasure, and will make something wonderful for myself with them when I come upon a pattern that is worthy. (I think I have one, but will ponder it for a bit).

You can get this yarn at http://www.greatnorthernyarns.com/.

Until next Tuesday you can get a 25% discount....yes 25% on their yarn by using the promotion code 0609. A wonderful buy, and if you are a knitter you won't be sorry, I promise.


  1. Thanks for posting about this! I heard about mink yarn before, but I couldn't find many reviews on what it was like. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I may have to get some myself. Dunno what I'd make with it though.

  2. Seems to me - - recently - - you discovered all the 'stash' and you were planning on not acquiring quite so much. LOL. It looks great. I love your description of it. Happy Stitching.

  3. I something non-deible could be YUMMY, this would be it!
