Nuages feels just like the name suggests, like the clouds. Made with a blend of brushed Suri Alpaca and silk, it is cloud light and oh so fluffy.
Inspired by Django Reinhardt and his Hot Club of France, we've taken inspiration from his original composition "Nuages" (pronounced nɥaʒ, meaning clouds in French.) The soft, lighter than air texture of this yarn emulates the suppleness of the ethereal gypsy swing standard.
Nuages is perfect, alone or held with another yarn, for your shawl and light weight garment projects. The fluff of this heavy lace weight yarn fills in a bit more than our Little Mo base. It's a lovely alternative to those who might be sensitive to mohair, but still want to add that beautiful fuzzy halo to your projects. You will want to knit ALL the things with this one.
