Blue Skys Baby Alpaca Sport Yarn is a phenomenally soft baby alpaca: 100% Alpaca. When we opened the box on this beautiful alpaca yarn, I just couldn't wait to start - yet I didn't have a pressing project (just a zillion unfinished ones) so I just wound some up and started knitting. The colors were irresistible, with so many possible color combos....it's soft as anything, light and easy on the fingers, with a soft alpaca halo. I knit the piece above on a size 7 needle - which came out loose and light, and I'm now trying it on 5's to see what it's like more tightly packed. It's just a delight to knit. Ultra soft, and in the most beautiful colors. This is 'Melange' in pesto and cotton candy - the pesto is slightly heathered, and even the pink in this lovely alpaca yarn has multiple tones. But it's very different from other alpaca yarns - I'd call it a Modern Melange - these are not your typical heathers. This yarn is really something else. Now, what to turn this into?
