Alpaca Air 12ply


Brand Chaska

We often use the term Yarn Snob in our store. This is not a derogatory title, in fact it is used as a complement¦ life is too short to knit bad yarn!

Our new Alpaca Air is going to be incredibly popular this coming Autumn and Winter and, rest assured, my store room stash of this yarn is rather enormous.

I'm sure you'll agree the range of shades is utterly glorious, there's gentle chalky shades of blue, yellow and pink, a cheerful coral and green and the some classic neutrals for those who want an understated look.

Over the last few weeks myself and Ruby (my amazing sample knitter) have whipped up a fabulously fashionable Balloon Sleeved Sweater, and a Cosy Shrug. Both these leaflet patterns are available on our online store.

There's also a complementary pattern available for our ever popular brushed alpaca Blanket, aptly named Heavenly I kid you not, I've now knitted this super blanket ten times and all my family members and friends have one!
