Lascaux Fine is a perfect combination of Old and New World wools, incorporating the bounce, spring, and cushiness of Manx Loaghtan Wool (old breed sheep) and the drape and lustre of Punta Arenas (modern breed). Lascaux Fine is perfect for all garments including sweaters, shawls and accessories (although we don’t recommend it for socks) and is idea for colour work and lace thanks to its structure. This yarn keeps you warm and cozy, while still feeling great against your skin!
While we make every effort to represent colour accurately, they may vary slightly when viewed on different monitors.
Dyed-to-Order: Please note that with dyed-to-order yarns you will need to allow up to 3 - 5 weeks for us to dye and ship your yarn. In addition, while we strive for consistency, due to the hand dye process variations may exist between (and with some colourways within) dye lots. Therefore it is important to order sufficient yarn for your project, and if a uniform result is preferred we suggest alternating skeins. We hope that you will value and appreciate the beautiful and unique creations of the hand dye process and are always happy to assist you in working with hand dyed yarns!
