Manos Lace is an opulent blend of baby alpaca, silk, and a touch of cashmere, for your finest heirloom lace projects. With 439 yards, you could get a lovely shawlette, or use two skeins to create a wonderful lace shawl.

Hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colors. No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots. Colors may vary greatly.

We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project. If there is great difference between skeins, we recommend working two rows  from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect. Made in Uruguay.

    Comments about   " Lace:

    I am working on the Himalayan shawl from "Folk Shawls". I waited a few years to find the "perfect yarn for what I want and this is it. Soft, touchable and easy on the hands when knitting, it is super light and warm. I had a few minor issues with gauge so I did some math and modified the pattern. It's probably a combination a thinner yarn that the pattern called for and me knitting tight. But for the right results a little math is hardly a bad thing.
