Ombre hand dyed lace weight baby alpaca and silk yarn in soft shell pinks


Ask a question

I have been playing around with dye techniques and have invented a way of producing soft ombre shades. As always I am inspired by the world around me and as a lover of beachcombing and rock pooling I wanted to recreate the soft shell pink colours of the little clam/tellin shells you find on the strand line.

The yarn is baby alpaca and silk and is dyed by me in a soft wash of colour ranging from a mid pink to the softest blush.

Each hank 100g/800m lace weight

70% baby alpaca/ 30% silk.

Gauge: 32 stitches x 40 rows = a 4inch/ 10cm square using 3.25mm needles.
