We absolutely fell in love with this yarn when we handled finished garments created from it. We knew we had to have it, and that you're going to LOVE it.
Where Road to China Lace is a show-stopping, fanciful, full-on-luxury lace yarn, Meadow is the perfect rustic-luxury, want-to-wear-every-single-day lace weight yarn.
Weirdly for us, we definitely preferred these more grounded and soulful colours from the Meadow palette when we experienced them in person, so we've restricted our range to the shades we loved best.
Combining four of the most luxurious fibres—baby llama, fine merino wool, silk and linen—this 2 ply yarn is slightly heavier than a typical lace weight yarn with very generous yardage.
It is a versatile yarn that works well on a variety of needle sizes and a wide array of projects. The crisp hand and stitch definition of linen with the sheen of silk is perfectly complimented by the softness of baby llama and fine merino.
A yarn for fibre lovers who like a treat on the needles and for their favourite handmades.
