Norwegian Wood - Lascaux alpaca

26.00

The stillness that lives among the towering, straight spruces is profound. The wet, cool fog saturates the land, and the moisture crackles underfoot with each step. These woods are no place for wanderers, but you are no stranger here. Cold, refreshing air fills your lungs, and your slow strides bring you to a cottage nestled between the forest edge, and the sea. Hand basket replete with pine needles and wood sorrel, you pull the latch, and enter the warm, fire-lit room.

Lascaux is a 4 ply blend of 20% superfine alpaca, 60% Superwash merino, and 20% nylon. This unique yarn is an incredibly soft marriage of delightful superfine alpaca, with merino for body, and nylon for strength. Lascaux is a great yarn for socks, sweaters, shawls, hats, or anything next-to-skin.

4 ply sock, 437 yds/399 meters, 100g

No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, it is recommended that you alternate rows to ensure more variegation and less pooling.

 My yarns are dyed with professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last against washing and sunlight.

Superwash treated wool can, theoretically, be thrown in the washing machine on a cool setting. To maintain a long life for your garments however, I recommend that you hand wash your wool in cold water with as little agitation as possible. Squeeze out excess water (do not wring since this will damage the fibers and distort your garment), and roll in a towel or lay flat to dry, blocking if necessary. Store yarn as well as finished objects where they are safe from the harmful appetites of moths.
