FEBRUARY STILLNESS - our featured color of the month for February! Be looking for a new one each month! This colorway is a resplendent blend of golds and earthy browns, gray, green and rust. So heart-warming. I wanted to go with this warm blend of shades for February as it reminds me of the quiet that seems to settle in during this month. In the northern hemisphere it's usually gray and cold so I wanted to warm things up a bit, while being reminiscent of the glorious sunrises and sunsets during February!

Beautiful and so soft. Thinking about making shawl/scarf. Not sure just yet.
I always look for the Alpaca/Silk colorways because they produce the most beautiful shawls, sweaters and anything I chose to make.
Alpaca Silk is always very soft! It feels wonderful. The color, though, isn’t quite as pictured. I purchased this in hopes of a sunrise spectrum. The yarn I received (maybe it was just this batch) was much more muted. It has soft yellow-greens, wheats, and yellows with some flecks of blue and green in a couple places. There are a couple spots with orange, but not like the photo. It is soft, and I’m sure it will work up well, but it’s just not as vivid as pictured.
The yarn is VERY soft and the colors are more beautiful than pictured. I'm thinking it will make up a very nice cowl or scarf, probably held double.
