Askham Lace in Thunder (Dyelot 130421)

Hand dyed 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk 2ply laceweight yarn in colourway Thunder - a medium- to dark-toned faded grey-purple.

Askham Lace (formerly known as Pegasus Lace) is luxurious, soft, lustrous, and lovely to work with. It creates a warm yet lightweight fabric, with good stitch definition. The silk content adds strength and gives the yarn a gentle sheen. The fine baby alpaca makes it a bit fluffy without being itchy like some alpaca yarns. An item made in this yarn is a joy to wear - you hardly know it's there but can really feel the warmth from it.

70% baby alpaca, 30% silk
2.5 - 3.5mm needles
28 WPI
Handwash without soap or detergent.

We recommend that you wash dark colours separately or wash a swatch before using dark and light colours together.

As with all hand dyed yarns, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless it's a one-skein project).
