Alpaca Yarn Company - Hand Dyed Yarns - Swizzle and Paca Paints HT

Swizzle, from The Alpaca Yarn Company, has a unique multi-toned hand dyed effect on top of super soft alpaca fiber. This yarn knits at approximately 5 stitches to the inch on a US #7, making it a great light worsted for use in fall projects.

The colors are really great -- including three "brights" that really pop against a single black ply.

All 9 colors of Swizzle are in stock. View the Swizzle colors here, or come visit to feel it in person.

Also just unpacked from The Alpaca Yarn Company is Paca Peds HT. This is a superwash alpaca and wool sock yarn. Included are 360 yards of the main color plus 90 yards of a complimentary dyed skein. Use this second skein for heels, toes, stripes, or other accent work.

If you were planning on making one of the popular shawl or scarf patterns -- this second skein works great for edgings and trims. Or isolate a particular panel of the pattern to be worked in the semi-solid to be sure it pops.

10 colors of Paca Peds HT are in stock. View the Paca Peds HT colors here, or come visit to feel it in person.
