What says spring like a soft pastel palette of colors? We just received Blue Sky Alpacas Royal Petites; and these 100% royal alpaca skeins where made for decadently soft accessories that call for fingering weight yarn. Its fine gauge creates a light and decadent fabric that is luxury at its most exquisite.With the same muted color palette, twist, and hand as Blue Sky Alpacas' full-size hanks of Royal, the Royal Petites are 100-yard/ 35 gram balls, geared towards smaller projects. We have limited quantities in 14 colors at $16.00 each. Along with these lovely skeins, you can see a selection of the Blue Sky Alpacas Pattern Leaflets that are available for $8 each. The illustrations remind me of old Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books that I read cover to cover when I was a girl.These patterns designed by Bobbi Intveld and Colleen Powley are all for smaller accessories that can be quickly knit up with a skein or two of this deliciously soft yarn. More details can be found on each of the patterns' Ravelry project page. From left to right we have: Windsor Mitts, Catherine Cowl, Buckingham Hat, Westminster Hat, Countess Mitts, Tiny Empress Set, and Mitini Mitts.Just in case you aren't yet ready to dive into summer knits, these patterns and this lovely yarn could help. They may provide you a quick project in delightful spring colors that just might ease the transition from the snuggly woolen knits that have kept your hands busy this winter. Let us know if we can set your favorite colors aside for you.
