Imported directly from Lanas Stop, the manufacturer, in Spain. This beautiful yarn is an "eyelash" yarn that knits up into fur!
• NO ANIMAL FUR IS USED TO MAKE THIS YARN (but it looks like the real thing when it’s knitted up and is very soft to the touch.)
YARN TYPE: Visón (Sheared Mink) Faux Fur MATERIAL: 95% Viscose - 5% Polyamide LENGTH: 52 meters / 57 yards WEIGHT: 50 gm. COLOR: Red COLOR NUMBER: 804 LOT NUMBER: P53071
The vest shown on the model is made with 5 balls of 804 Red Mink and 3 balls of 804 Red Visón yarns and is knitted using US 9 and US 10.75 needles (Metric needle sizes are 5.5mm and 7mm). The pattern for the vest can be found in the Lanas Stop Publication No. 115. (Mink yarn and publication are listed separately.)

If you are not familiar with the word Visón, you're not alone! It is French for sheared mink! So, it is a shorter fiber than the Lanas Stop Mink yarn.
