Lotus is a wool/silk blend yarn that is silky and smooth with a great luster. This worsted weight yarn works up nicely into shawls, cowls, hats, and other accessories. Lotus shows off lace, cables and texture very well, and the yarn takes dye fantastically, letting the color shine through in your projects. Although Lotus is a wonderful option for smaller projects, you can really let it shine in slightly larger items, like shawls or shrugs. Lotus is an exceedingly pretty yarn and a pleasure to work with.
