Casual Cashmere Lace – skein
80% Superwash Merino wool / 10% Cashmere / 10% Nylon. Lace weight, 2-ply.
Approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 525m (575yd).
Gauge: because of the open work in lace knitting, gauge is seldom given for lace weight yarns. Follow your pattern recommendations for best results.
Laundering: Handwash cool, dry flat.
A “thickish” lace weight yarn, and even at only 10% the cashmere shines through in the super-soft hand. Perfect for shawls, scarves, cowls and so forth. We haven’t worked with this yet, so we’re not sure how much it will bloom during knitting/dyeing/rinsing but it will likely get a bit of a halo yet not enough to hide your fancy stitches.
This yarn takes dye beautifully, whether you are using acid dyes, food colouring, Kool-aid or even natural dyes. Just bear in mind that Superwash yarn blends strike with acid dyes so quickly that it can be very tricky to get a decent solid tone. Use that to your advantage like we do, to get interesting semi-solids or go crazy with hand painting.
