Nimbus (suri alpaca/silk)

A superb kidsilk-style 75% suri alpaca and 25% silk heavy laceweight yarn. Nimbus is incredibly soft, with rich, bright colours with great depth. Delicate, gauzy, and yet surprisingly strong, each 50 gram skein is approximately 300 metres of yarn. Depending on your pattern, you can bump your needle size up to 5mm or 6mm, and it’ll do a medium sized lace shawl with ease. For a standard stocking stitch gauge, we’d recommend you start with 22 stitches per 4″ on 4mm needles, and see how you like the fabric.

We would recommend a hand-wash with gentle detergent in tepid to warm water in order to keep the colours looking their best.
