Product Description:

Hand painted alpaca and silk, luxury yarn - variegated lavender blue The base yarn for this luxury product is a soft, fine laceweight, 70% baby alpaca and 30% mulberry silk. It is whisper soft. Each skein contains around 400 metres - please see photo against 1 inch measure for accurate gauge. I dyed this one by hand painting it with very light touches of lavender and steel grey, then overdying with pale blue. This has achieved an overall very subtly variegated effect. It would make a stunning wedding shawl. 2 x 50g skeins, ie. 100g and 880 yards in total http://www.etsy.com/shop/SpinningStreak http://www.etsy.com/shop/SpinningStreak?section_id=5307046
