Axis is a gorgeous worsted sweater weight yarn from Lily Kate Makes. This yarn has been designed especially for your favourite sweaters that keep their shape. Soft warm non-superwash wool with a little undyed Suri alpaca to give a soft heather effect.

In addition to being a knitwear designer, Lily Kate is also an Astronomy and Planetary Sciences student and has chosen to name the yarn Axis and use mathematical and astronomical shade names to reflect this passion.

Supplied as a skein which we recommend you wind into a "cake" or ball before you start your project. #axisbylilykate
