Aegypte / Fingering Weight / Baby Alpaca Silk Linen Hand Dyed Luxury Yarn

$40.00
- +

Title: Default Title

Aegypte: The unique texture of linen combined with the silky sumptuousness of baby alpaca and silk means a most amazing yarn perfect for year round knitting and wearing.  Bits of linen fiber are softened by the alpaca/silk three-ply base - and the linen will soften while knitting and with repeated washings (hand only, please) and wearing.

{{ IMPORTANT }} You may order dyed on order skeins on this page, but ready to ship skeins may be in stock (check here).  Dyed on order skeins will take at least four to six weeks to ship.

Check base yarn status before you place your order.

Your skeins will not be identical to these photos, but will be very similar. No two skeins are identical. Colors will vary from skein to skein - if your project requires more than one skein, please be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation and please be sure to order sufficient skeins for your project at the same time.

I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. I take great care to dye yarn that is variegated throughout: no big pools or stripes of color. I also reskein all of my yarn after dyeing to eliminate knots and tangling.
