Yarn made from peppermint? Yes, it’s true. Bellatrista’s Menta is made from a sustainable, renewable fiber. It’s 100% viscose, which is made from regenerated cellulose fiber…in this case, peppermint.
Menta is a machine-washable, 6-ply, DK-weight yarn with a luxuriously soft hand and an elegant shimmer. As with other cellulose-based fibers, it drapes well, is moisture-wicking, breathable, and smooth and comfortable against the skin.
As with all hand-dyed yarns, we recommend you purchase enough to complete your project in order to avoid reordering, thus minimizing the chance for color discrepancies inherent with different dye lots.
