Silky Alpaca Lace is a beautiful blend of fibers, spun into a gossamer yarn that knits into amazing lightweight pieces. The alpaca gives the yarn warmth, softness and a wonderful halo; the silk adds sheen and additional softness. Read the full description...
I've used this yarn for many projects and the results are always beautiful. The alpaca is very soft with a little halo and the silk is just enough to give it some sheen, softness, and better stitch definition. This tends to be the yarn that I use the most for my lace weight projects.
This yarn is yummy! the color is rich and lovely and the feel is so soft. I can't wait to knit a shawl that becomes my go to garment for comfort. I purchased one skein and called immediately as soon as I received it to purchase more. This yarn is so nice.
My boss is getting married and, in her 40's, want a candidate for the white cream puff dress. I volunteered to knit her one. We settled on a lace coat featured in a recent Vogue Knitting. Having considered several other and more expensive yarns, I returned to the original as shown in the magazine. And Jimmy Beans had the color &quantity we needed! This is a lovely yarn to hand with good definition for lace work. I would highly recommend it.
