Haunui Silk, (pronounced Hoo-noo-ee and translated as “place of the winds”) is a natural blend of raw mulberry silk and unique mixed-breed Haunui merino wool from the Taranui farm in New Zealand. This yarn has a slight thick and thin quality to the single ply. True wool lovers will cherish this limited-quality, slightly rustic, undyed yarn. No two sheep are exactly the same color, but their fleece fall into colour categories and are blended to create rich shades of oatmeal, brown, gray, and black. User-friendly heavy worsted-weight gauge. Great for hard wearing (outerwear) garments with a touch of luxury.
