Zephyr Wool-Silk is truly a luxury yarn.  Light and lustrous, it is made from 50% fine Merino wool and 50% Chinese Tussah silk.  The yarn takes on a beautiful sheen.  This yarn is very popular with weavers, especially art weavers.  Hand knitters have also discovered this yarn for it's softness, sheen and drapiness.  

This product listing is for 50 and 100-gram skeins in 2/18 lace weight (additional charge when selecting 100-gram skein).  See other related products for Zephyr in 1-lb cones, as well as listings for the worsted (medium) weight version of Zephyr. 

Lace Weight (5,040 yds/lb)  (Also known as fingering weight, symbol "0")

50 Gram Hanks- approximately 560 yards.

100 Gram Hanks - approximately 1,120 yards.

Knitting Gauge   -varies, lace is often knitted on needles from US 1 to US 4.  Stockinette stitch can be knitted on sizes 000-1 for 33 to 40 sts per inch.  Can be used held 3 strands together for the equivalent of a sport weight yarn.

Washing Instructions: Dry-cleaning is recommended by Jaggerspun.  Many weavers and knitters have good success with handwashing with a mild soap made especially for wool and silk, and air drying.

Note that it is recommended that wool-silk garments not be exposed to natural or artificial light for prolonged periods, as the dyes may not be as resistant to fading as 100% wool.

We love this little sweater, Floating, by Cecily Glowik MacDonald.   You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/floating/

It's designed for Jaggerspun laceweight, and a single 100-gram skein will make sizes under 55 inches (chest measurement).  The pattern on ravelry assumes 50-gram skeins.

Needle options (US #5), in length 29 inches or longer: Rockets for Lace,  Bamboo,  Turbo

 
 Swallowtail Shawl

 Swallowtail is a very popular ravelry pattern by Evelyn A. Clark, and it's a free download: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/swallowtail-shawl.  This shawl is beautiful knit in laceweight Zephyr.   

Normally this is knit in size US 4 circular needles, length 24" or longer.  Consider the Addi Rockets for lace.
