    a little touch of sweet green

    a strong fine thread to knit shawl but also add with a double thread a touch of spring green that illuminate some fade other wool. it's changing every thing suddenly! this green is funny and sweet, looking natural more than an apple green too acidic

    Delightful!

    This yarn is a delight to knit with. It feels soft to the touch, slips comfortably through the fingers when knitting and does not get tangled. The quality of this mixture, Baby Alpaca and Silk, is superb. This particular colour 'Lettuce' is so rich, fresh and vibrant, just what I wanted. I am looking forward to wearing the finished item, a scarf.

Description

Despite being Malabrigo's thinnest yarn, it is plied and sturdy - perfect for lace projects and very special objects that are sure to become precious heirlooms.

Great for: Lace, shawls, scarves, diaphanous garments.
