Hand-painted unusual 100% alpaca tubular-knit yarn in Aquamarine

Sale price Price $ 23.95 Regular price

Knittique is now in its second year of producing exclusive, limited-edition hand-painted yarns, and this sumptuous alpaca yarn is one of the unusual luxury fibers I specialize in!

This beautiful colorway, Aquamarine (part of my Sailing Collection), may look like a solid color, but it's actually subtly variegated shades of aqua and turquoise. And the yarn itself is not only air-soft and super-lightweight, it's essentially a loosely-knitted tube— an unbelievable pleasure to work with and wear!

PLEASE NOTE: All yarns will be wound into center-pull balls before shipping, so they'll arrive ready-to-use! If you'd rather your yarn was left in skein form (as shown here), you must let us know when you place your order. Thank you!

Care: Hand wash in cool water with mild detergent; do not agitate or wring. Rinse in cool water, and gently squeeze out excess water. Did I say do not wring? Lay on towels or drying rack to air-dry.

PROJECT IDEAS: The FREE pattern for the neckwarmer shown here (which is made from just 1 skein) is now available!

If knitted on a fairly large needle (U.S. 11-13), you could also make a small-ish scarf from just 1 skein; using a lace or drop-stitch pattern makes yarn go further too.
