Alpaca Supreme Heavy Lace
We have long been intending to launch a heavy laceweight version of our heavenly Alpaca Supreme Sport and with the arival of spring, Virtual Wonderwool seemed like the ideal time to do just that.
With such a lustrous shine and drape, our Supreme is simply divine as a heavy laceweight (600m per 100g). We are imagining all the soft (and light) as a cloud spring and summer shawls. The other joy of a laceweight yarn, is that is is the ideal thickness to hold together with a strand of something else, perhaps a fluffy mohair yarn, a light weight linen, or even a second strand of Supreme lace for a subtle marled effect?
As lace yardage goes rather a long way, we’ve decided to offer these as 50g skeins, so you’ll be able to enjoy playful stripes and colour accents without breaking the bank…
|Meterage||300 meters per 50 grams|
|Composition||40% Superfine Alpaca / 40% Organically Farmed Falklands Merino / 20% A1 Mulberry SilK|
This yarn will be launching proper as a part of our Virtual Wonderwool Wales celebrations on the 24th April, so not long to go now!
Our Alpaca Supreme yarn is breathtakingly soft, lustrous and smooth with sumptuous drape and shine. The addition of Alpaca and Silk in this range make it our softest base and ideal for shawls, accessories and anything else you can think of that might need that extra touch of opulence. We have extended the colour palette and added some subtle dyed shades to accompany the gradient of neutrals. All our Alpaca Supreme shades are named (rather fittingly) after precious metals, stones and minerals. Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle?
Like all our yarns at the Mill, Alpaca Supreme is worsted spun which means all the fibres are aligned in the same direction and any shorter fibres (which might be prickly) are combed out. Aligning the fibres in this way accentuates their strength, softness and drape. Supreme is delicately blended by the Mill Folk using superfine Alpaca, organically farmed Falklands Merino and A1 Mulberry Silk. When working with these quality fibres, which have been carefully prepared by our expert Mill Folk, you’ll be sure to create an heirloom garment you or a loved one will cherish for years to come.
