fantastic for sweaters but also works well for lace. Great for cowls, scarfs, mittens and luxurious baby knits. Next-to-skin

and silk, it makes handknits truly shine. This two-ply yarn is glorious in lace shawls and scarves, but is also fantastic for
lightweight, drapey sweaters. Nona is superwash so it can be put in the washing machine on the gentle cycle, though hand
washing is recommended due to the cashmere and silk content.
