Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace Yarn - Sage Reviews

Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace Yarn - Sage
Sage shown $58.00
Helen's Lace, a delicate, finely spun silk and wool blend, is the epitome of lace weight yarn. Meant for the most exquisite projects from intricate heirloom shawls to elegant high fashion knits, Helen's Lace is as versatile as it is beautiful. Available in many of the dynamic Lorna's Laces' hand-dyed colorways, this superior yarn comes in large hanks of over 1200 yards to ensure color consistency for all your projects no matter the size or scope. There is also a free shawl pattern included on the label

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."

This is a deam to work with. Very soft and easy to work with. My favorite Lorna's Laces so far out of the four different ones I have tried.

This is my very favorite yarn! I love the drape and flow of the fabric achieved when knitting with Helen's Lace. The color ways are also some of the best! I live I. Southern California so this light weight wool silk blend is perfect for a summer evening wrap, and in the winter it gives warmth without bulk when wearing layers as we have to do, as our weather can go from hot to cold in a matter of hours. I love the wide selection of colors that you provide here on the Jimmy Beans website, when I buy yarn, Jimmy Beans is my go to source! Satisfaction every time!

The shire 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love this lace yarn. However, I like other color ways better...at least for my current project. But believe me when I say I will find some other amazing project to use this for. I like the Flushing color way better as its a more subtle variegation . Fantastic yarn !

beautiful yarn and great for those shawl patterns that require a lot of yardage, the skein is so plentiful you need not worry about joining yarns in the middle of delicate lace patterns.
