For the Love of Lace

Lace knitters will be happy to see a new collection of colorful lace yarns being added to the shop soon!  The base yarn is a gorgeous, drapey,  80% merino wool / 20% tussah silk.  The generous yardage (984 yds / 100g skein) is enough to knit an entire shawl.

My first batch of this yarn was dyed up a vivid "traffic stripe" yellow at the request of an amazingly talented lace knitter, Joan.  She quickly whipped it up into the awe inspiring Henry Street Shawl.
