A sport weight/3 ply weight yarn. This super soft yarn has a glistening silk core with a gentle halo of supersoft alpaca like soft pillowy clouds hence the name Cumulus.
This yarn is a delight to knit with, an alternative to mohair, with the combination of the delicate alpaca halo and the smooth silk core creating the softest knits with a beautiful drape and a delicate haze - without being itchy.
