Manis - summery yarn with alpaca, silk and linen
Manis comes at a fingering weight (425 m) and I have dyed it in in a semisolid palette of candy colours and a couple of neutrals. Popcolours are to come beginning of April. Apart from shawls it also lends itself perfectly for loose summery garments and crocheting. Feels very soft and quite dry to the touch, very smooth and like linen to work with. It doesn't have much memory or spring like wool, but for that it makes tops and summer crops and tees with a lovely drape. Feeling dry, light and soft to the skin.
Zelda crop by @handmadewardrobe is especially suited for this yarn and can be made with 3 colours only .
