Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
OK, so I'm a Capricorn - this purchase was inevitable, right? Alpaca and silk...what a dream come true! The colors have amazing depth. The light plays off this yarn and it feels heavenly. I bought enough for a large-ish shawl, and I'm now perusing patterns for the yarn. This weight is perfect for wearables, and I can't wait to get started. Whatever you use this for - you won't be disappointed. Like Capricorns, this yarn is a sensible choice for you. The balance of the sheen of alpaca/silk, the blending of colors and the weight of the yarn itself will lend glamour and elegance to your project.
I'm a Capricorn, so let's get that disclosure out of the way. This yarn is like a Capricorn: deep and beautiful. The colors sing. The feel of the yarn is amazing. Ordered for a large-ish shawl, and am focusing on which pattern will allow this yarn to shine. I love the colors and the way the light plays off the yarn, and no matter what you use it for, you'll be very happy with the outcome of your project.
