Pascuali's Saffira yarn is spun and dyed in Italy. It consists of 75% ultrafine merino wool and 25% mulberry silk. The fineness of the merino wool is 16.5 microns, as such, it falls into the finest category of "ultrafine" wool. Even though the difference between "ultrafine" and "extrafine" is only 3 microns, you can clearly feel the difference on your skin.
Its wonderful composition of Argentinian mulesing-free merino wool and mulberry silk lets you knit any top and fine accessories throughout the year. Saffira’s ultrafine merino wool provides your knit project with high elasticity and keeps body-heat well. Its silk composition also provides a subtle shine, a refreshing feeling and a high durability.
Saffira’s elegant color palette is inspired by the sea. All colors can be easily combined for excellent results.
