Saffira is a yarn made from the finest merino and mulberry silk, pleasantly soft and suitable for all kinds of fine knitted pieces. The fineness of the mulesing free merino wool is 17.5 microns, which 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.
Saffira’s ultrafine merino wool gives your knitted garments high elasticity with excellent insulating and breathability properties. Its silk composition also provides a subtle shine, a refreshing feeling and high durability. This yarn will inspire you to knit wonderful garments and accessories.
