Numa is a "lace" yarn of baby alpaca (70%) and silk (30%). Untreated.
Very soft and pleasant, Numa can be knitted perfectly with a strand of fingering instead of mohair for example. It produces a fine halo.
Our wools are hand dyed. Therefore, you must plan on the quantity needed for your projects, as the colour may vary from one bath to another. We take great care to reproduce the colour of our images as closely as possible, however, screen displays may vary. Thus the color of the skeins you receive may vary slightly from the photo displayed. For a more uniform knit, I recommend that you alternate your skeins.
Suggested needle sizes and gauges :
Needle: 2.5 - 3.5 mm (US1 .5- 4),
Yardage: 800 meters/100 gr. (874 yards/100 gr.)
Hand wash with a wool soap such as Soak, ideally, room temperature (21°C.) Avoid shaking or wringing.
Dry flat away from direct sunlight, do not spin or tumble dry.
Wool not machine washable (n sw).
Suggestion for a knitting project I made with the Numa base:
