Description

Perfect for heirlooms and delicate lacework, Joy will highlight your fine craftsmanship.  We sourced the finest baby alpaca to create this super soft lace-weight yarn. Baby alpaca refers to the fineness of the alpaca fiber (it does not come from a baby animal), meaning it's super soft, you could say, soft enough for a baby! Joy is a 2-ply yarn, ideal for accentuating lacework yarnovers and creating a beautiful fabric with great drape. We love using Joy to knit baby sweaters, intricate lace-work shawls, and everything in between. Try carrying a strand of Joy with another yarn to add color & texture!

Warning

Due to its vibrant quality, we have found that this colorway tends to release dye into the wash basin while soaking. These dyes may transfer over to fibers in lighter colorways. For this reason, this colorway is not recommended for projects that feature colorwork or striping.
Before wearing, hand wash garments separately with like colors in cool water using a gentle wool wash. Limit soaking time to 10 minute increments. Rinse thoroughly. Roll gently in an old towel to remove excess water and lay flat to dry.

If desired, re-fix dye before using as follows: Using a dye basin, combine 1 tbsp white vinegar + 1 cup boiling water + 3 cups tepid water per 100g of yarn. Soak yarn for 10 - 15 minutes. Remove yarn and roll gently in a sheet of plastic wrap. Microwave roll for 2 minutes on high, checking closely to avoid overheating or excess steaming. Allow roll to cool before handling. Soak yarn in cool water using a gentle wool wash for 15 minutes. Squeeze out remaining water (do not wring.) Hang yarn on a plastic hanger or in a mesh laundry bag and allow to dry completely.

    My favorite lace weight yarn to hold double! This baby alpaca yarn is perfect to add a pop of color to any knitting or crochet project.

    Definitely lace-weight, delightfully soft. Colors were vibrant, just like the photos.
