Lascaux Worsted is a delightful blend of Old World and New World sheep fibre. Manx Loaghtan is a heritage breed sheep found only on the Isle of Mann, and the modern breed is the Punta Arenas from South America. The natural colour of this yarn is a light brown, so it has a heathered undertone when it is dyed, and although it looks rustic, it actually knits up exceptionally soft! This is a great yarn that feels wonderful against the skin, making it perfect for sweaters and shawls.
Note: Lascaux has it's own unique colour palette due to the natural colour of the yarn.
