LILAC on Alpaca Lace Cloud

Regular price $25.00

Quantity Available: 3

Lilac is a light purple colorway with some subtle darker purple speckles.

I dyed this yarn 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.

YARN PAIRINGS
Lilac would go beautifully with Smitten or La Bohème on any of my fingering-weight yarn bases. The photo of my lovely daughter shows my new Knit and Chat Infinity Scarf pattern made with this Lilac yarn and Smitten on Dream Sock. You can find the pattern on my blog.

MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order.  Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
