Shadow Lace Yarn

$5.99 50g / hank


The spongy, ultra-soft Merino wool provides a light touch of warmth, and the deeply heathered colors result in delicate lace that seems like passing shadows. Heathered colors ensure wardrobe versatility since they compliment so many different shades. You'll find that a shawl, wrap or scarf knit in Shadow can be your go-anywhere chill chaser as well as fashionable accent. If you prefer more substantial lace, this yarn looks lovely knit double stranded.

Also available as natural undyed yarn so you can create your own colorways.

This is the softest wool! I have never used this before. I am knitting the Reed Heather in a lace scarf. The color is gorgeous. It looks as soft as it is. I haven't finished it, blocked it, etc., but I can tell I am going to love it. I'm so glad I got it on sale because after reading other reviews I took and chance and bought three different colors, four skeins each. Not one bit sorry!!!

I have been a customer for over a year now and I have never been disappointed, but today I am extra happy with my order. I requested matching dye lots on some opal heather I ordered the first of 1 month ago and knit picks was able to get it for me. So now my shawl turned sweater project will not be a bust. Thank you knit picks.

Love this yarn. I’ve recently made a sweater from this - Oregon heather, held together with Aloft in Oat colourway. Made it on a knitting machine, a simple dolman in stockinette with rolled neck and 3/4 sleeves. It’s utterly beautiful, light as air and so warm! By itself, Oregon heather is a bit dirty, but when mixed with the light champagne beige of aloft, it works perfectly. I think mixing two oat colorways would work great too, especially with matching beads. This yarn is soft, strong and really easy to work with. Love the heathered colorways.

Such a beautiful lace yarn! Also incredibly soft. I can't wait to purchase more for my next project!

I really like this yarn. It's wonderfully soft and squishy. I am crocheting a sweater using a 2.5mm hook from this yarn and it's going to be delightful. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is that it has a slight thick/thin texture. It probably wouldn't be so noticeable in stockinette, but you can definitely see it in crochet lace. Also, I find the loose twist a little splitty but it does give it a lovely drape so I wouldn't say it's a totally bad thing. The Garnet Heather is a gorgeous colour too.
