Excellent pricing for this truly elegant yarn blend of Merino Wool (50%) and Tussah Silk (50%) from JaggerSpun in convenient 100g tubes! This unique combination of fibers provides yarn that is lightweight and lustrous and can be worn against your skin without scratching. The sensuous texture and appearance comes from a slight difference in dye absorption between the two natural fibers and the yarn is perfect for cool summer and warm winter garments.
JaggerSpun is a division of Jagger Brothers which has been producing fine yarn for weavers and knitters since 1898 in Maine. They are known worldwide for their high quality worsted spun yarn produced for both commercial fabric producers and well as handweavers and knitters.
Convenient 100 Gram Tubes
Perfect for Weavers and Knitters looking to affordably mix multiple colours, these tubes are perfect for those that want to avoid having to rewind skeins into balls or tubes before they start their project!
At Camilla Valley Farm we stock all colours of the 2/18 weight Zephyr so we can confirm availability and ship your order quickly! Discounted prices are available on quantities of 5 tubes or more making the price very attractive for this premium yarn!
The yarn comes in the 48 colours shown in the picture below.
Because wool and silk accept dyes differently, the fabric made from this yarn may have a slightly "tweedy" look in some shades. Due to the difficulities inherent in dyeing wool-silk, some shades may be less resistant to fading in light and water than 100% wool. For this reason, we recommend that wool-silk garments not be exposed to natural or artificial light for prolonged periods and that they be dry-cleaned only. We cannot be held responsible for damanges incurred as a result of any other cleaning or finishing method.
With a yarn weight of 5040 yards/pound (10160 m/kg), this worsted spun wool/silk yarn blend is available in 100 gram (3.53 oz) tubes resulting in 1100 yards (1006 metres) per tube. Pricing is shown below. Other JaggerSpun yarns are also available on a special order basis. Contact us for pricing/availability for the 4/8 weight of Zephyr as well as other JaggerSpun products.

Unlike many stores, Camilla Valley Farm is a stocking dealer which means that we carry inventory of all colours of 2/18 Zephyr and do not simply order it when a customer places an order with us. As well as faster delivery, this also means that customers visiting our store can make their selections while comparing the colours of the actual yarn. We normally maintain a least 500 tubes in inventory.
A Sample card that includes a 12 inch long piece of each of the JaggerSpun Zephyr colours is shown below and can be ordered for $6.00 CDN ($6.00 US) by referring to part number "JZ2-SAMPLECARD". This price includes shipping. The yarn samples are removable allowing colours to be put together to see how they will look when combined.
Note that this card includes actual samples of each colour of Zephyr yarn while other sample cards we have seen use other less expensive JaggerSpun yarns to show the dye colours and only a single sample of Zephyr to show the weight.
While it provides a fairly accurate reproduction of the colours and sizes, their appearance can vary from computer monitor to computer monitor. We suggest you verify colours with the sample card before ordering to ensure your project turns out as expected. Click on the image below for a larger picture of the card.
