You have to get your hands on this skein! Made from 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk, this yarn is 100% soft. This is the luxury yarn all others should be compared to. I'm not sure if I'll be satisfied with my yarn stash at home after knitting with this luscious skein.
With each skein containing about 495 yards, you'll have enough yarn to knit a lacy shawl. You won't need to knit the whole wrap to discover the addictive qualities of this yarn. You'll fall in love with just one stitch.
Inspired by the beautiful colors of the clematis climbing vine, this skein has earthy greens, rich purples, deep plums. I always love the clematis flowers in my garden more than any other. Just like this yarn, they're simple, natural, and stunning. They perennially return to climb the trellis doors. Made from natural fibers and dyed with vibrant colors in the USA, I know I'll return time after time to this yarn. I'm just so impressed with it's soft silky texture--and how pretty it is to look at!
This yarn would be perfect for a lacy scarf and would work especially well for those delicate and airy summertime patterns. The colors can complement blooming summer flowers. Don't fret, however--this is an evergreen yarn. This would bring a gorgeous touch of color to a winter ensemble. You could knit an elegant shawl to go with a wool evening dress.
I wish every yarn could be as soft and luxurious as this one. The rich colors have me hooked. This skein is absolutely gorgeous--you have to try it!
