Suede Shoes - Lascaux alpaca

26.00

The light inside the bar is dim, but you can make out the shining spots on the angular cheeks of sweaty, laughing faces, and their glasses glimmer and clink with fervent joy. That is when you see them, at the other end of the bar, a waft of cigar smoke clearing in front of their face. They smile, teeth sparkling like those toasting glasses of the other happy patrons. You sure are glad you wore your suede shoes.

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.
