I'm enthralled with the interplay of lavender and steel within the greys of this yarn. It brings to mind the glorious coloring of certain birds, the ones who at first glance appear plain, but upon closer observation reveal incredible nuances and shades within their feathers.
This is one of our most versatile bases; a stunning blend of wool and silk. It makes an excellent warp for weaving; has crisp stitch definition in knitting and crochet, and is incredibly soft besides.
I want to introduce everyone I meet to the versatility of lace. You don't have to knit lace to use laceweight yarn. Double it up to make fingering weight, or quadruple it to make DK. If you have a swift and ball winder, it's as easy as making the first cake single, then take the inside and outside ends and re-cake once or twice. Ta-da! You can also run a strand of lace with any other weight to make it more interesting and unique.
