NFA Egyptian Lace
Deliciously soft yet strong lace weight yarn from a luxury blend of Alpaca, Silk and Linen.
The linen gives this gorgeous yarn an almost rustic natural look, the alpaca adds a lovely softness and halo, and the silk is soft with a very light sheen and adds drape. Ideal for shawls and wraps or light sweaters and cardigans.
This blend of fibres together create a beautiful yarn with little memory (unlike a fibre like Merino for example) as there is little crimp in any of the fibres used. This means that the garment will not 'spring back into shape' but will flow and drape. Use for gorgeous shawls and scarves or for floaty Summer tops and light open cardigans.
