Lace weight

Lace weight yarn, the finest, most delicate of yarn weights. In the past, most commonly used for shawls. In current knitting times, the soft mohair and alpaca lace weights are held with other yarns to create a softer, feather weight product that can be used for hats, sweaters and accessories. Pairing yarns is not only a way to change the fabric, but color. Beautiful marled looks are created with these types of combinations for unique looks.
