A luxury and interestingly heavy lace-weight 3 ply yarn made with Baby Suri Alpaca and Mulberry Silk from Fyberspates. This super soft yarn has a gentle halo like soft pillowy clouds hence the name Cumulus.
This yarn is a delight to knit with, an alternative to mohair, this yarn has a delicate halo creating the softest drapiest knits with a delicate haze without being itchy.
The Plu sweater pattern (pictured) by Jeni Hewlett is available as a Ravelry download both instore or via the Ravelry website and is worked with 2 strands of the Cumulus held together.
