Cobwebs from Great Adirondack

Cobwebs

These are both beautiful fine lace weights.  The Orenberg is a Kidd Mohair/Silk blend with amazing dyes and a glimmering sheen.  The Cobwebs is a super soft Alpaca/Silk blend of laceweight dyed by the color geniuses at Great Adirondack.  You think its nice here?  Come in a touch it.  Alpaca + Silk = Heaven!
