Cloud Lace

(10 customer reviews)

£20.00

Cloud Lace is made from 72% kid mohair and 28% silk. Recently there have been many patterns written for Mohair, having had a resurgence in popularity (and in fact is used in Scardigan and Love Note held together with a 4ply)  It is light and fluffy and at 420m/50g skein it goes a long way.

Cloud (named so for obvious reasons) is made from 72% kid mohair and 28% silk, and works really well when held double with a 4ply - in fact I have several patterns/kits on here - see Trescao, Love Note and Scardigan, but it is also used in 100 Hundred Words For Rain and Follow The Moon. It is light and fluffy and at 420m/50g skein it goes a long way.

I dye all of these shades regularly, but if the colour you want is showing as out of stock, or you want a larger quantity you can order it here and I will dye it for you at no extra cost. There is a minimum of 2 skeins per colourway.  Alternatively you can join the waitlist to receive an email when it’s back in stock.

A few things to bear in mind when using hand dyed yarn:

  1. No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. If consistency is important and/or to prevent colour pooling I strongly recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row, particularly on larger projects. If you only have one skein, then you can use both ends at once.
  2. Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal - think jeans...) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate. I also advise against soaking your finished item as the colours can bleed.
  3. It is not possible to work directly from a skein/hank. It must be wound into a ball before use, or will get into a terrible tangle. For more information on how to do this there are hundreds of  videos on YouTube. Alternatively for a small fee I can do it for you here.
