Helen's Lace Grays Corner, named by the founder of Lornas Laces, is the corner gas station in Somerset California. This color is all shades of pink and purple with hints of grey. Helen's Lace is a delicate 50% Silk 50% Merino blend that is ideal for heirloom shawls and infant christening gowns. Works perfectly for summer shells or short sleeve tops. Keep your project soft and silky by using a wool wash. This 3 1/2 oz hank has a whopping 1200 yds. The needle or hook size used can vary immensely depending on if the project is a shawl which is open and wispy, or a summer top that needs tighter stitches for no peek-through.
