This week I'm excited to let you know that there is a new yarn now available in the shop. This is the Peristera Lace Yarn.
This lace yarn is a sumptuous mix of blue-faced Leicester wool and soft silk. It is named after Peristera, an uninhabited island in the Sporades, Greece, with a rugged landscape rich in natural colours and surrounded by crystal clear, deep waters. When this yarn is dyed the colours take on a beautiful shimmer and shine, just like the still waters reflecting the colours of Peristera.
If you enjoy knitting lace shawls then this yarn comes highly recommended. You get all the stitch definition, drape and warmth from the Blue-faced Leicester, coupled with the sheen and softness of the silk. It's a winning combination!
Each skein is 656 yds / 600m of 55% Superwash Blue-faced Leicester wool and 45% Silk. There are a number of pre-dyed colours available on the website, or you can choose to have your own custom dye in any of the custom dye colours listed on the website.
This yarn would work beautifully for the Beauty of the Rain, the Moon and the Sky, or the View from the Spire shawls, and it has been added as an option for all of these shawl kits too.
