Ashland Bay’s newest yarns are a result of our recent trip to Peru. We are thrilled to introduce Newport, 92% superwash merino / 8% silver lurex. Lurex is a continuous filament introduced in the plying process. Two of the four plys of this yarn have the lurex embedded in it. The lurex remains silver after dyeing the yarn, lending itself to a sophisticated and elegant visual. It is also amazingly soft to the touch.
Recently, we have received many requests for a fingering weight single superwash merino, therefore meet Abiqua. This yarn is very chic with understated simplicity and luxurious hand. Abiqua is wonderfully soft and knits into a lightweight fabric perfect for warmer weather.
Both of these yarns are available in cones and skeins. The skeins are packaged in 10- 115 gm ( 4 oz ) skeins. The cones are approximately 2.3 lb each. Be among the first to try these new yarns! Available to ship today!
