Our luxurious kidsilk yarn is incredibly soft. It is light to wear and works wonderfully on standard gauge and over-size needles. It‚Äôs a good all-weather fabric ‚Äì loose knit for spring/summer tops and shawls and a regular gauge for autumn/winter scarves, sweaters, and held double with any other yarn for a little something special.
And the name?
Cape Carnival is an annual event on January 2nd where the city bursts into colour, music, singing, dancing and parades. The occasion is rooted in the slave history of Cape Town when slaves were allowed only a single day off work in the year and they used the opportunity to celebrate. And so the city does too!
