2 ply / Lace Weight - Alpaca Silk Cashmere Yarn
Made of the same 70% baby alpaca, 20% silk and 10% cashmere blend as our heavenly Honeysuckle 8ply (DK weight) and Kunzea 4ply (fingering weight) yarns, Lilly Pilly 2ply lace weight yarns are perfect for delicate scarves and shawls, with a stunningly soft texture and lovely drape. Lilly Pilly is also a popular choice for double-stranding, either to increase gauge or get creative with complimentary or contrasting colours!
