The yarn type in each blanx is as follows:
75% sw merino/15% cashmere/10% silk

What are Blanks?
Blanks are made from fingering weight yarns which have been knit up into fabric prior to dyeing. They kind of resemble short scarves! This creates a canvas on which dyers paint their own artistic colourways onto the fabric, and since each blank is individually hand-dyed, no two are exactly alike. Projects made from a blank knit and crochet up in truly unique ways!
If you want no fuss crafting, you can knit or crochet directly from the blank. First, you need to find the appropriate end of the blank to start. As with knitting, if you find the correct end of the blank, you can pull and the stitches will easily unravel, much as if you are ripping back your knitting. If this doesn’t feel right to you, you can always wind your blank into a ball and work from there. You can either do this by hand, or attach one end to your ball winder.
