Kid Silk Lace from Nurturing Fibres is, simply put, the best that South Africa has to offer!
Hand-dyed with love, and dried in the African sun, this yarn boasts a fabulous colour palette. You are guaranteed uber-luxury when you treat yourself to working with this soft, lofty yarn.
This brushed yarn is spun from 70% Kid Mohair, in combination with 30% silk. The Mohair creates a soft halo of fibre around the shiny, slender silk core of the yarn. Compared to other Kid Silk yarns available from South Africa, Nurturing Fibres offers their guarantee that this is by far the finest available. This means that it is softer and more delightful to create with! Even sensitive hands and skins are able to work with them.
Kid Silk Lace is very light and luxurious. It knits or crochets into dreamy shawls and garments. You can also use it in combination with other yarns, by holding strands together as you knit or crochet. The combinations are infinite!
This soft yarn can be worn directly against the skin. As a lace weight yarn, it offers great value for meterage.
Are you curious to try out this yarn? Consider the Wisp Shawl, by Carle Dehning, as shown in the picture. Available for free on the Nurturing Fibres Website, it uses only 2 balls of Kid Silk Lace Yarn. A fabulous, shawl that no-one will believe was easy to make!
