Old World meets New World in this Canadian hand-dye. Lascaux is a unique fibre combination of two sheep breeds: Manx Laoghtan, a heritage breed from Isle of Man, and Punta Arenas, a new breed sustainably introduced to the region of the same name in Patagonia. The result? A plied yarn that is plump with a soft hand and excellent stitch definition. Colourways have an earthy undertone thanks to the natural brown fleece of the Manx Laoghtan, with gentle tonal changes throughout. Lascaux is perfect for sweaters and winter accessories.
