Take the lustrous, long, bright and very high quality hair of the Angora goat; the fine, soft and elastic wool of the merino sheep; the sumptuous wool of the Mongolian yak; add silk and combine it all with Pascuali´s years of experience in developing high quality natural yarns and you have: Manada.
This very special yarn is called Manada (which is the Spanish word for "herd") because it is, after all, a rare blend of fibers from different natural sources. It is a yarn not found anywhere else in the market today! Manada has the unmistakable shine of silk, the soft fluffiness of superkid mohair, the elasticity of merino and the special softness of yak.
Manada can be knitted with smaller to larger needles creating smaller to bigger stitches. So, depending on the nature of the project and how dense or loose you want the piece to be, you can use a different needle size. For this reason, the gauge given ranges from needle size 1.5 US (2.5 mm) to 6 US (4.0 mm).
All in all, Manada is a yarn that is sure to captivate you and inspire you to knit the most wonderfully soft garments and accessories. Its color gradient can be combined perfectly with other yarns in our Pascuali range like Tibetan and Bayalage.
