Single ply, glorious yarn with, 40% Baby Alpaca, 40% Merino Wool and 20% Silk, an absolute treat to knit with. The fabulous drape of alpaca, married with the silk and wool would make this a perfect yarn for an incredibly special hat, cowl, shawl, mitts, your imagination is your guide. While a single ply can pill, this yarn, mixed with the silk and wool does seem to pill far less than we would expect it to here at the Liedel Fiber Dye Studio. This is a NON Superwash yarn, so please, no agitation, and no water warmer than 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Yes, silk can take a bit more heat than that, but why risk felting? This yarn can felt, we know, we’ve done it, by accident and on purpose. A wonderful quality that makes this a very warm knit.
-About the Colorway One of my main helpers is a wonderful young woman named McKenzie. She pops round when I have a show, or am about to do some serious work and helps, because she can. If you happen to be at Stitches Midwest next August, you can meet her in person! She is just everybody’s sweetheart and this sophisticated mix of tonal mauve and pink suits her spirit, if not her style of dress. Pink, but adult, with undertones of silver and mauve. Just a lovely colorway with a bit of old fashioned kindness for your neighbors. Truly lovely.
