100% Pure Lambswool Knitting & Crochet Yarn, 2 Ply Lace
"A true crafters yarn. As the yarn is still oiled/raw the creative possibilities are endless!"
This is an Oiled Yarn great for machine knitting. Perfect to use on Passap/Pfaff, Silver Reed, Brother etc. knitting machines.
For hand knitting and crochet:
Use 1 end as a lace weight yarn, use 2 ends together for a 4 ply yarn using 3.75 mm knitting needles or a 4 mm crochet hook. All of our knitting and crochet kits currently use this yarn either using 1,2,3 or 4 ends.
This yarn really does give you the opportunity to try new and crazy ideas by using more or less ends, bigger or smaller hooks and needles or by using different wash cycles on your washing machine to achieve different finishes.
Allow for +/- 10% shrinkage when washed. Hook/Needles size, amount of ends used, wash cycle used etc. will determine and influence the exact amount of shrinkage.
A luxury lambswool that is beautifully soft and fluffy (After its been washed). The fibres are given the utmost care throughout production to ensure the luxurious handle. The lambswool is from the Geelong area of Australia which is synonymous with fineness and is then spun in the UK.
