Hello, Amano Mayu Lace.

Meet the very newest yarn here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop: Amano Mayu Lace!

Amano Mayu Lace is a luxurious lace weight yarn, as soft and smooth as its fiber content suggests – royal alpaca, cashmere, and silk. These fibers provide drape alongside buttery softness, making Mayu Lace perfect for delicate lace scarves and shawls.

This yarn is dip-dyed for a tonal, semisolid effect, a slight variegation but not enough to distract from stitch patterns.


What to knit with Mayu Lace? So far Amano has two patterns for this new yarn: one skein makes an “Irene Bandana” (pictured at left), two makes a “Julieta Shawl.”

It would also work beautifully in Melanie Berg’s “Whiteout” shawl, Kate Davies’ “Hap for Harriet,” Ambah O’Brien’s “Alinda Wrap,” and Evelyn A. Clark’s popular “Swallowtail Shawl.”

Each 50 gram skein of Amano Mayu Lace has 437 yards, and costs $28. Use our online order form to place requests or ask for suggestions – we’re happy to help you plan your next project!
