Debbie Bliss Angel

Angel is a gorgeous new laceweight yarn from Debbie Bliss. It is 76% superkid mohair/24% silk and so luxuriously soft you just want to cuddle it. It knits up on a range of needle sizes from 3.25mm - 5mm with a tension of 18-24 sts and 23-34 rows to 10cm depending on the needle size. It will knit to any laceweight patterns for shawls and scarves and has it's own book (also called Angel) with 9 stunning designs, see here. Both the yarn and book are due in stock this week at
