Pegasus Lace in Buddleja (Dyelot 201016)

70% baby alpaca and 30% silk 2ply laceweight in colourway Buddleja - a richpinkish purple inspired by the richly scented flowers of the'butterfly plant'.

Pegasus Lace is luxurious, soft, lustrous, and lovely to work with. It creates a warm yet lightweight fabric, with good stitch definition and a gentle sheen from the silk (which also adds strength). The baby alpaca makes it a bit hairy (without being itchy) and is 22 micron, which is fine. 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.

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).
