Marrons Glacés - Perlucidus Kid Silk Lace (50)
The colour story:
In the event a fresh chestnut, still warm from being roasted in a recycled oil drum and handed over in a newspaper cone, is not available a candied one is a very fine alternative. Reminiscent of the southern French delicacy, this colourway has hints of chestnut brown, plum-brown, gold and mauve on a creamy base to give a subtle and soft tone.
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:
Perlucidus Lace is a lush, soft and lofty 70% kid mohair and 30% silk yarn. This yarn will bring glorious fuzzy depth and warmth to your projects either held single in a fluffy light weight garment or held together with another yarn to make a lofty and lush finished object. Please note that neither silk nor mohair does not have any stitch memory and once blocked will not spring back so please block judiciously and handle gently while wet.
