Luft means air; a fresh combination of Ultimate Merino® in an organic cotton cage (GOTS certified). This airy yarn is perfectly designed for spring and summer knitting.
Luft is made from Ultimate Merino, sourced from selectively bred flocks in Patagonia. The fiber from these flocks boasts an impressive average micron count of 17.5, putting it soundly on par with cashmere but with the durability of merino.
What does that mean for you? It's soft - 'softer than cashmere' soft!
