Luxury Jemala Yarn

Jemala Yarn

Jemala, The Golden Fibre, is a rare natural fibre produced under chemical free conditions. This enhances the fibre's natural growth tendencies, while reducing the seasonal variations that accompany field growth in the great outdoors.

Natural wool fibres frequently vary in thickness by up to 8 microns along their length due to seasonal and stress factors. Jemala Ultrafine Saxon Merino fibres normally only vary by a maximum of 0.5 micron along their length.

In short, it is a knitter's delight. It is already creating considerable interest, and is generating requests for information from around the globe.

Jemala Yarn

yarn (yärn) n. 1. A continuous strand of twisted threads of natural or synthetic material, such as wool or nylon, used in weaving or knitting. 2. Informal. A long, often elaborate narrative of real or fictitious adventures; an entertaining tale. [1]

In Australia, a yarn is also colloquially known as an entertaining tale, because of the many strands that make up the tale. Shearers were well known to tell yarns while shearing the wool off sheep. Some were long, some were colourful and many yarns told were historic, captivating and exquisite in their detail. Yarns were entertaining and had people enthralled.
