Lascaux Fine is a delightful blend of heritage and modern sheep fibre spun into a 2-ply fingering weight yarn which is perfect for stranded colourwork projects. It is available in two sizes of skeins – 50 g and the regular 100g skein. The 50gm skeins are perfect for colourwork projects when you only need a small quantity of an accent colour.
The heritage breed sheep is Manx Loaghtan, found only on the Isle of Mann, and the modern breed is the Punta Arenas from South America. The natural colour of this yarn is a light brown, so it has a heathered undertone when it is dyed, and although it looks rustic, it actually knits up exceptionally soft! This is a great yarn that feels wonderful against the skin, making it suitable for garments like mitts, sweaters and even lace shawls!
Hand dyed in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Milled in Italy. Wool from Peru and UK.
