Laceweight Yarn

Category 0 on the Craft Yarn Council chart, laceweight yarn would knit at 9 or more stitches per inch in stockinette stitch, but is generally knit on much larger needles and blocked to a wider gauge to showcase lacework.

 

Although ideal for floaty, dreamy lacework, laceweight yarns are also perfect for lightweight garments and layering pieces. BBF laceweight yarns are dyed with the lace knitter in mind: subtle variations in color won’t overpower your stitchwork.

 

Heavenly
This blend of 70% baby alpaca, 20% silk and 10% cashmere truly is heavenly! Unbelievably soft, with a slight halo from the baby alpaca content, and delightful subtle variations among and within colors due to the blend of fibers. Each skein is approximately 1300 yards and weighs approximately 100g.

 

Flutter
Flutter is a lovely blend of 80% superfine merino and 20% silk, with the wool giving elasticity and the silk giving plenty of luster. Generous 1300-yard skeins weigh 100g before dyeing — plenty for most shawl patterns that use laceweight yarn.

 

Suri Sparkle
One of the newer additions to the BBF family, this stunner blends suri alpaca — a breed of alpaca known for its supersoft, fine fiber — with merino wool and sparkly silver stellina fiber. (The exact proportions are 80% suri alpaca, 15% merino wool and 5% stellina.) A glorious blend of softness and shine, with nice drape. Each skein is approximately 1090 yards and weighs 125g.

 

Merino/Silk
If you’re looking for smaller quantities for scarves or to mix colors, Merino/Silk Laceweight is perfect. Dyed in 430-yard skeins, this yarn is a beautiful blend of 70% merino wool and 30% silk. You’ll want to try multiple colorways of this one!
