Road to China Lace was the natural progression fromåÊthe much-adored sport weight luxury hanks of the same blend. This is the lace hank that we reach for when we want to create something truly special and has the yardage to indulge hours of meditative making. Born from our days of running a small mill back in Maine, Road to China Lace combines baby alpaca, cashmere, silk and camel in a 2ply yarn that celebrates our love for the beauty of natural fibres. The saturated colours play enticingly across the duotones created by this heady blend that was developed for softness and rich drape.
