WHAT IS IT?
This yarn is a gloriously soft blend of 70% cashmere and 30% silk created for an Italian knitwear designer - you can’t get more luxurious! Bellissima has a loose chenille, short eyelash texture so will create a lightweight fur fabric that will be extremely warm and cosy. We only have a limited stock, and a variety of quantities per colour, so when it's gone, it's gone and this is reflected in the amazing price.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
Fur type yarns don't give any stitch definition, so knit into something simple and easy (garter stitch all the way!) such as scarves and wraps, throws or cushions and draping garments. Perfect to use on the knitting machine (as it was intended) using a low tension on a standard gauge. Bellissima makes a great weaving yarn as the pile will really come into its own – use primarily in the weft.
Although we haven't tried, there's no reason at all why the pale shades wouldn't easily dye into your own unique palette using hot water dyes.
