Cuzco Alpaca Lace
Each 75 gm skein of this lovely lace weight alpaca-silk yarn features 495 yards and a feel to the touch that is divine!
So soft and silky....it is absolutely heavenly in the hands and has a gorgeous lustre. I kettle dyed this so there is some tonal variation in each skein to make for an even richer fabric.
I know not everyone wants to knit with "laceweight" yarn, so I am working up a pattern holding 2 strands at a time and grading thru a few colors for a quicker knit and a gradation of color that makes for an interesting piece. Check back after the holidays to see what I come up with (a few other projects in the queue ahead of this!).
I wish my photographic skills/camera would do it justice....these colors are luminous.
