Prism Delicato™ lace yarn is very seductive, with a soft, silky-smooth and cool to the touch hand. If you admire hand dyed merino wools but can't wear them due to the heat they retain, I encourage you to explore Delicato. The Tencel® fibre it is made from is cool on the skin, is ten times more absorbent than cotton, stretches less than rayon, and is environmentally friendly, being made from sustainable trees and in a closed-loop system that re-uses all chemicals.
Delicato™ knits up beautifully single strand for lace shawls and tops, double strand for 4Ply Fingering gauge projects and triple strand for Double Knitting and Light Worsted gauge projects. One generous 630 yard skein makes a lace and lacey top. Great value for a beautiful hand dyed product.
