Product Description: Manestrale (Moonbeam) is a super soft, light, airy and full-bodied yarn, consisting of an exclusive blend of baby alpaca, merino wool (mulseing-free), polyamide, and polyester. The fine Lurex thread gives a discreet glimmer in Manestrale. Manestrale is specially produced for CaMaRose at a family-owned Italian spinning mill, taking into account the environment and animal welfare, thus the merino wool used is of course mulesing-free.
Manestrale is perfect as a companion thread with other CaMaRose lines such as Yaku, Tynd Lamauld, and Snefnug. Manestrale is suitable for sweaters, cardigans, shawls, hats, baby and children's knitwear using just one thread, but also with several other yarns for chunky sweaters and cardigans where there may be a discreet glimpse of glitter.
Note: if you want more Manestrale than we have in stock, please let us know and we will see if we can order it for you.
Fairlight Fibers Notes: Manestrale is a perfect sparkling companion yarn, or lovely and fluffy on its own! The sparkles are very visible in most of the colorways, giving the yarn the ability to add bling to anything! The brushed alpaca fibers give it a soft, fluffy appearance. It's an ideal alternative to silk/mohair for folks who find that yarn too scratchy. Be sure to zoom in to see the sparkles!
