CAMBRIDGE, baby!

LInda Lencovic ISLINGTON - British BFL/Silk, Kettle Yarn Co., WESTMINSTER - Baby Camel/Silk

As promised, I debut-ed a new base last weekend in the shop, then promptly forgot to post about it on the blog! Silly me.  So be-latedly here we go…

CAMBRIDGE

70% baby Alpaca
20% Silk
10% Cashmere
Lace 2ply — 100 grams (3.53 ounces) = 875 yards (800 meters)

It doesn’t get any softer than this…the softest, loftiest baby alpaca, blended with luminous silk and topped off with a cashmere halo cloud. Sheer perfection.

Three colourways are up in the shop this week – ‘Felix‘ purple,  ‘Liminal‘ blush pink and a golden butter yellow one of a kind (OOAK).

This is a deliciously soft and light blend that is also incredibly warm and will make stunning shawls for holiday gifting! This blend feels meltingly like butter in your hands and has a lovely, extremely warm drape from all that cushy baby Alpaca and added Cashmere. The silk adds subtle shine and a bit more drape.

You can add a strand of this to another yarn for some added drape, furry halo, warmth and just plain luxury, or use it alone for exceptional lace knitting.

The sun is out and shining this morning so I took some glowing photos in the light. Here is a teaser for next week’s update if you are still looking for the right skein(s) for the Charm KAL, starting in November:
