Askham Lace in Stonecrop (Dyelot 130421)

Hand dyed 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk 2ply laceweight yarn in colourway Stonecrop - this is a subtle dusky blush shade, named for the peachy shade of the flowers on the sedum (or Stonecrop) in our garden.

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.

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).
