This week we’ve been busy at the dye pots creating yarns for lace knitting – just in time for the weather to finally warm up here in London! Two new laceweight yarns were added in this morning’s shop update – Brilliance Lace and Fuzzy Lace – as well as new shades of Brilliance 4 Ply.

Brilliance Lace

A laceweight version of our much-loved Brilliance 4 Ply in the same blend of fine British Bluefaced Leicester wool and silk. Brilliance Lace has 600m per 100g skein, for those who like their laceweight with a bit more weight. It has superb drape and is perfect for any kind of lace knitting. The combination of lustre wool and glistening silk gives amazing luminosity to our hand-dyed shades. We’ve launched it in a range of semi-solids, including neons for maximum brilliance!

Fuzzy Lace

Fuzzy Lace is a delicate brushed yarn in luxurious baby Alpaca surrounding shimmering strands of silk. It can be worked at a variety of tensions for different fabric effects; use larger needles for airy lace, or smaller needles for a lightweight yet incredibly snuggly and warm fabric. Try knitting it held together with another yarn to add a soft halo to garments. It’s also perfect for our Cauldhame scarf. Fuzzy Lace is available in 25g skeins with 150m per skein.
