  • Feli is a totally unique yarn created by wrapping a cashmere boucle (brushed) around the finest grade merino. The result is an amazingly soft, light, luxurious yarn with a beautiful texture.

    Fabric created with Feli is light, with a delicate handle (the yarn is strong though), and fuzzy halo that still some how allows for stitch definition and doesn't shed.

    We love that some of the colourways have different coloured merino cores to the cashmere which adds extra depth and interest.

    And this generous DK / Light Worsted gives you a whole 150m / 50g instead of the more typical 100m skeins.

    Looking for patterns that would work for Feli? Here are a few that we know would be amazing.

    Typically Illimani - this is luxury fiber that just has to be experienced!
