Lebes by Borgo De Pazzi is a double-stranded, twisted yarn made from 1 irregular, soft cotton and 1 metal/Lurex yarn, which randomly produces a gold and silver knobs.

The final result depends on the knitting technique used and the model. An Ajour pattern looks beautiful with Lebes.

Beautiful for summer shawls, but also as a complement to other projects. Ideal for festive creations.
