The look and feel of this yarn from Fibre Company is really marvelous.
Called Acadia, it is simply delightful. Here is how the Fibre Company describes it:
Acadia is an absolutely beautiful, completely original and custom designed 2-ply yarn with a rustic look and soft hand. A subtle tweed effect created by the silk noil is combined with a heathered base and then overdyed in the duotones we are known for, creating incredible depth of color.
The yarn is made up of 60% merino wool, 20% baby alpaca + 20% silk and has 145 yds/50 gram skein. Can't you just imagine how it feels?
The usual gauge listed on the skein is for 21-23 sts = 4 inches on US 5-6, so plan from that.
This colorway offered on this page is named Sea Lavender . It is a cool gray, with the silk slubs just slightly lavender in hue.
A really delicious look and feel; the slight sheen from the silk enhancing the whole, the alpaca's softness and warmth, and the merino's delicious feel and resiliency.
No reservations -- this one will be a joy to use.
