Ken - Virga Silk Lace

  • $45.00

The colour story:

Ken is that guy. You know, the guy that sometimes shows up near or with Barbie? This yarn was inspired by the Aqua song 'Barbie Girl' and named for her opposite number because what else do you call a fun, subtly variegated aqua colour with subversive flashes of lavender and pink?

As with all hand-made things, there is always some variation between skeins even within dyelots. If you plan to make a larger project, blend your skeins through transition rows.


The yarn story:

Virga Lace is a soft, lustrous and drapey 2 ply yarn made of 50% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool and 50% tussah silk. This yarn will bring soft loft and good drape to your lace projects or can be held double with other fine yarns for a luxurious finished object. Please note that silk does not have any stitch memory and once blocked will not spring back so please block judiciously and handle gently while wet.
