This yarn is 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk and 100% luscious. Soft, silky, with just a bit of a halo. Don’t be fooled by it’s delicate handle: it is plied and sturdy- perfect for lace projects and very special objects that are sure to become precious heirlooms. Malabrigo yarns are kettle-dyed, which leads to beautiful, sensitive colour variation. We recommend getting enough yarn for your project because colours vary between dye lots. Some colours vary between skeins within the same dye lot, so we suggest alternating between balls every few rows to ensure an even colour distribution.
