77% alpaca – 23% silk, 50g/280m, aran weight by the maker company as it can be knitted with large needles, but as it's feather light I put into lace category. Recommended needle size: 3 – 4,5 mm Yarn base: Drops Brushed alpaca silk A luxurious yarn in an exclusive mix of soft, brushed alpaca and subtle shiny silk! The yarn’s feather light and surprisingly warm features make it suitable for both small and large garments, and it can be knitted relatively fast on larger needles. It can be used as an effect yarn when worked together with other yarns for lovely soft results! Made in Peru. All 50g skeins has 1 knot inside as the undyed yarn arrives in 25g balls.
