Arietta - Lace Weight

Our Spring 2024 Arietta pre-orders are now closed. If you have made a pre-order purchase you yarn will be shipped by June 15, 2024. We'll also be doing a small re-stock of each colour, which will be available in late June. 

One of our most luxurious yarns, Arietta is a light and airy lace weight wool and silk blend. Its subtle colour variation adds texture and depth to lace knitting, and the generous yardage makes it possible to knit a scarf with just 50g of yarn, or a shawl or stole with 100g.

We recommend using a swift when winding this yarn. If you don't have access to one, we can wind your yarn into cakes before shipping for a small fee.
