Luminosa is a luxurious looking 52% Viscose/ 44% baby alpaca/ 4% merino blend - and it feels just as wonderful to work with as it is to look at the final results.
This alpaca-blend yarn is constructed with a shimmery tube filled with black baby alpaca perfect for elegant accessories.
Luminosa is a worsted weight yarn. Although the label says 18 sts. = 4" on a US 8 needle (5mm), it can be knit a bit tighter or looser depending on the project. The fiber content of this yarn gives it lots of natural drape.
We knit the Elizabeth Caplet out of Luminosa and we love the results! The garter section at the bottom reflects the light so differently than the stockinette section and gives the finished project another layer of depth and interest. We used 2 skeins knitting the first size in the colorway lavender (color 12). The first size will fit up to and including a women's medium size.
Each skein is 240 yards and is 100 grams. Hand wash and lay flat to dry.
Easy to work with. Soft. Looks great made up.
