Lorna's Laces Haymarket Yarn - Mineshaft Reviews

Lorna's Laces Haymarket Yarn - Mineshaft
Mineshaft shown $19.50
This decadent worsted weight yarn is available in all of Lorna's Laces beloved hand-dyed colors! It is composed of 100% Bluefaced Leicester Wool, which is wonderfully soft and is a great choice for cowls, cardigans and hats. You won't want to put your knitting down once you start!

The color Go, Sandy, Go was created in honor of a very special JBW family/staff member, Sandy! In the fall of 2014, Sandy underwent chemo to address her recurrent cancer, and Lorna's was generous enough to dye up the gorgeous shade of peachy pink, the color endometrial cancer support, to help us raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Both Jimmy Beans Wool and Lorna's Laces are donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this color in any Lorna's Laces yarn to Cast of Chemo!, a fiber-arts based charity that helps to "fund research that will end the need for chemotherapy in breast cancer treatment and, ultimately, cure potentially all cancers."

Overall Haymarket Rating: 4.8 out of 5 (4.8 based on 24 reviews)

luscious 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This is the most luscious yarn. Silk-like but with substance... Colors are saturated and it abounds with sheen and character.
