RENAISSANCE Alpaca Yarn: Sport Weight, Hand Painted
Soft as a cloud baby alpaca yarn, hand painted lovely pastel shades of gold, violet & navy and ready for you to make something truly yummy with it! Each skein is 291 yards per 3.5 oz. This a sport weight yarn.
I used a new technique to dye this yarn colorway and, wow, was I happy with it! The first thing that popped into my mind after the dyeing process finished was the opulence of Renaissance palaces, like Chateau Chambord in France.
Hand painting means each skein is unique; no two skeins are exactly alike.
We recommend hand washing and air drying anything you make with this yarn. I can tell you that this is one of the softest yarns I have ever worked with; it works up beautifully, lays flat and has wonderful drape. Knit on a size 5 needle yields 5 stitches and 7 rows per inch. Crochet hook F (using SC) is 3 stitches and 2.5 rows per inch.
*Listed price is for one hank of yarn.
