This soft and shiny sport weight yarn has 146 yards per 50 gram skein. The delicious 50/50 blend of Alpaca and Silk brings the best of both fibers together into a yarn that is both soft and lustrous. The stitch definition of this yarn is fantastic. Blue Sky Alpaca Silk is a yarn that we love to knit with, and with each skein at $11 with the discount, we think that you will want to select it as your new favorite.
The jewel tones that we have in stock are gorgeous, and picking just one to work with may prove difficult.
This quick knit is Flora Poste’s Cap, and can be made with a single skein of yarn. Theresa had so much fun with this project she couldn't resist making three. She'll tell you that they will make great gifts.

Julie’s Mom Barb just finished the Accordion Scarf by Kathy North that is among the patterns in the Winter 2009/2010 issue of Knitscene. It is a satisfying knit that comes together quickly with the use of large needles. The soft fluffy stitches make a scrunchy fabric that is a treat to wrap around your neck. We just received some extra copies of this back issue, so that you can cast on for this project without delay.
And last but certainly not least, our neighbor Amelia just cast this beauty off her needles, and you are going to fall in love with this wrap. It is a dream to wear and trying it on will move this to the top of your to do list. The Etched Rio Wrap is a Blue Sky pattern that was designed to be knit up in Metalico, the Blue Sky alpaca silk blend that makes the most of naturally occurring shades of alpaca and comes in a beautiful array of neutral shades. Amelia elected to use the Alpaca Silk instead so that she could take advantage of the amazing rich colors that this week’s Deal of the Day has to offer. We love her choice and suspect that you will too.
We hope that you can stop in to see these beautiful samples and the wonderful yarn that is on sale this Wednesday. We ship for free and can easily get a few skeins on their way to you if you give us a call: 970-407-1461.
