Lascaux Fine is a beautifully unique blend of 25% Manx Loaghtan Wool and 75% Punta Arenas Wool.
The natural colour of this yarn is a light brown, so it has a heathered undertone when it is dyed, and although it looks rustic, it actually knits up exceptionally soft!

Caroline from Ancient Arts describes this blend perfectly: "Lascaux Fine is a perfect combination of Old and New World wools, incorporating the bounce, spring, and cushiness of Manx Loaghtan Wool (old breed sheep) and the drape and lustre of Punta Arenas (modern breed). Lascaux Fine is perfect for all garments including sweaters, shawls, and accessories (although we don’t recommend it for socks) and is ideal for colour work and lace thanks to its structure. This yarn keeps you warm and cozy, while still feeling great against your skin!"
