                                Lavish was a Knitcircus exclusive yarn, with extra luxury built right in. It is a heavy fingering or light sport, depending on how you decide to categorize it. With 70% superwash Merino, 20% cashmere, and 10% nylon, it is super soft and plush indeed. Because it was heavier than we anticipated, we've added extra weight to the cakes of goodness to make sure you get the yardage you need; what we think of as "a 100g cake" will actually weigh 115-118g to ensure 400 yards.
