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.
Not gonna lie, I have never been a huge supporter of Alpaca fiber bases. I ordered Elegy an eloquently dyed pewter on her Alpaca Silk base. I was super surprised at the luxury and decadence of this yarn. I plan on knitting a whisper fine heirloom lace shawl of this and I can't wait to have this product in my hands and on my needles. Thank you Chandi, you always treat me to fine and wondrous knitting experiences! I am sinfully indulged!
