Reddish mid to dark purple hand-dyed suri alpaca and silk yarn.
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.
We would recommend a hand-wash with gentle detergent in tepid to warm water in order to keep the colours looking their best.
The yarn has been hand-dyed in a smoke-free and pet-friendly home, but no pets have had access to the fibre. Please be aware that, while we make every attempt to provide you with accurate photographs, the colours in them may vary from monitor to monitor.
