Elegant Yarns Athena Yarn is a lace weight yarn made from 100% merino wool. Merino wool is a soft fine wool obtained from a special breed of sheep called merino sheep. Their coat is naturally soft due to the very fine fibers that make up the coat. This yarn is ideal for making lacy things like shawls, doiles, or other creations where you want a soft lace effect.
