Silkpaca Lace is spun from the finest Chinese silk and the finest Peruvian alpaca. This hand-dyed lace yarn with its beautiful sheen, drape and softness highlights these wonderful fibres at their very best.
(Be sure to buy enough yarn to complete your project as each bag of yarn is a different dye lot and skeins may vary from one to another. To ensure random colour distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.)
