I've been on a search for the 'perfect lace yarn' for some time now, and my supplier has answered the call and really outdone herself! Introducing: Ritz Lace! This yummy, soft, shiny fiber is 80% alpaca, 20% silk, and 10% cashmere - the drape of beautiful and the yarn reflects light. As with all fiber with silk content, it takes the dye beautifully - and even the most subtle colors are nice and saturated. The skeins are nice and generous: 100 grams and 1300 yards!
Here's a sneak peek at a few colors that just loaded to the shop.
Sterling - it's as shiny as the real thing - a very cool gray that halos blues and pinks. This was an experimental dye lot - I'm not sure I can even recreate it!
Tulip - rose, green, blue, and gold - all in Spring tones.
Mink - taupey browns with a bit of gold and bronze highlighted passages.
