Cherry Tree Hill's Orenburg Lace

Continuing in the theme of Cherry Tree Hill Day, let me mention Orenburg Lace (you can see our selection here although not every colorway has a photo associated with it yet).

Orenburg Lace

This hard-to-get lace weight yarn (it's my understanding that there are only a small handful of stores - less than ten - in the United States that carry this) is brought to you from handspinners in Russia. It's entirely spun on drop spindles. The content of this lace is 80% Kidd Mohair and 20% silk, and comes in 50 gram hanks of 600+ yards. Cherry Tree Hill handpaints the yarn in all of their traditional colorways. We just got a large shipment before we opened, and will be getting even more in, in just a couple of weeks.
