Hand painted yarn 100g. angora laceweight lemony green

Product Description:

Hand painted yarn 100g. angora laceweight yellow green The base yarn for this is a skein of 80% angora, 20% acrylic.. The acrylic strengthens the yarn (you do not want breaks in lace knitting) and reduces the risk of pilling, but at 80% angora the yarn remains soft, though it is not the same as pure angora. I hand painted it in light lemony green, with some touches of lime. The last picture gives an idea of the colour blocks, before the yarn was re-skeined. I would use this one on fairly large needles to create an open, airy fabric - a summer scarf or shawlette. It is a fine yarn - laceweight but not cobweb. See picture against a 1 inch ruler for better idea of gauge. This is 1 fat skein, weighing 100 grams and 600 yards http://www.etsy.com/shop/SpinningStreak?section_id=5307046 http://www.etsy.com/shop/SpinningStreak?ref=si_shop
