Venice is an I-cord or chainette bulky weight yarn made of 50% Fine Baby Alpaca / 22% Nylon (binder) / 21% Polyester (Lurex) / 7% Fine Merino Wool. The yarn is not spun, it is knitted using four stitches in the round on a machine. The knitting heads use the Lurex to create the chain. When the needle comes up to grab the yarn to create a new stitch, the fine baby alpaca fibers are knit into the chain. The result is a very fluffy, lightweight, and soft yarn. Each skein is 300 yards (274 meters), 3.5 oz (99 grams). This yarn needs to be hand washed and laid flat to dry.
Keep in mind there are no dye lots, every skein is hand-painted and unique. Images shown are stock images of the colorway; actual color saturation and distribution may vary from skein to skein. Please note, the actual colors may also differ based on the color settings of your screen.
