Loving Lace.

Again (or maybe still?!).

Look what's just arrived.
This is Manos Lace, a blend of baby alpaca, silk and cashmere. Imagine how soft that would be...it's even softer. And it's kettle-dyed; the colors are gorgeous. Each skein is 439 yards. A perfect match for Annis , or Swallowtail ...or a host of other projects!

a sampling of the colors...of course we have them all!
Brand-new from Swan's Island, their lace-weight is a 50/50 blend of fine merino wool and tussah silk in a 550 yard skein. That little bit of extra yardage makes this a perfect match for Citron .
Or Juliette's Scarf. This one is so new I couldn't find it on Ravelry or the Swan's Island website...but we do have the pattern in the shop. And I was fortunate enough to see it knit up in person (our rep brought the sample in for us to see today and I had five minutes alone with it to take this photo). Yes, I'm in love....
