AFTER THE RAIN on Alpaca Lace Cloud

Regular price $25.00

Imagine the sun coming out right after a big rain storm. The gray sky is still off in the distance, but the sunshine is making everything sparkle with fresh color. That was my inspiration for After the Rain. The colors include several shades of blue, lilac, burgundy rose, fuchsia, sea-foam green, and chartreuse.

I dyed it on my Alpaca Lace Cloud yarn base.

This yarn base has all the delightful texture of a mohair yarn with none of the itch. It's made of baby suri alpaca and silk, and it has a wonderful halo similar to angora.

It can be used on its own or, as I have shown in the last photo, it can be used along with another yarn to add texture.

It is a lace-weight yarn, but because of the texture, I recommend using slightly larger knitting needles or crochet hooks than you typically would for lace.

The yarn comes in 50 gram skeins with 328 yards per skein.

After the Rain would go beautifully with the same colorway on one of my sock-weight bases. I included a photo of it with So Silky Sock.
