Not your grandmother’s lace yarn! Alfar is a versatile superwash laceweight 2-ply with a slight twist to show off your stitches. While delicate and light, it stands up to knitting, frogging, and aggressive blocking.

Though you can machine wash it, we recommend hand-washing any lace items to preserve the stitch work.
