It's so exciting when you introduce a new yarn to the family and we have been bursting to tell you about this one for a while. Well, it's nearly here!
Cumulus is our 74% Baby Suri Alpaca and 26% Silk blend that comes in 25g balls of 150 metres [164 yards]. This Light Fingering/ Heavy Lace weight yarn is a wonderful alternative to Mohair with its’ fine ethereal halo. However, with 26% Silk content comes incredible strength and sheen making this delicate yarn surprisingly hard working.
Available in our well-loved jewel tones as well as a new palette of soft colours specifically developed for this yarn, Cumulus is perfect for fine accessories and garments. This unique blend will produce a light fabric that has the kind of loft and breathability that only Silk and Alpaca can provide. Due to the larger needle size required to work it into a fabric, it’s also an economical choice as a little goes a long way. Cumulus will add more than just texture to your wardrobe: it will give you a yarn that works all season round.
We're busy plotting pattern support and collaborating with some amazing designers to bring you inspiration for this gentle little yarn but in the meantime we will be taking a small sampling to Unravel for you to preview. Yes, you can get your hands on this before it wholesales or goes in the Fyberspates shop.
