Canopy is simply an amazing fingering weight yarn and is a true joy to knit with.

The Fibre Company is the parent of this wondrous Canopy Fingering, a 50% alpaca/ 30% Merino/ 20% Bamboo blend that feels so absolutely delicious -- I wish I could send it via cyber-space so you could experience it yourself.

Each 50g skein has 200 yards to it and can knit anywhere from 28 to 32 stitches to a 4" swatch. Which makes it wonderful as both a light fingering weight or a heavy lace weight.

Here is how the Fibre Company folks describe it:

"Canopy Fingering is a fingering weight 3-ply strong, soft, shiny and drapey yarn perfect for color work, lace or textured stitch patterns. The unique blend of fibers are spun into a smooth yarn and then kettle dyed, and the different way the fibers absorb the dye creates a beautiful depth of color with subtle heathered tones."

All I can add to that is "Yum!"

*****

The color we offer on web page is named Bluestars. This is a rich deep blue, with very slight tonal variations.  A wonderful "background" yarn or perfect just as itself.

This yarn is fantastic for any next-to-skin wear -- think of it for scarves and shawls in particular as well as for hats. The alpaca adds warmth (in addition to its stupendous softness), the merino as well (plus the "memory" that wool gives a piece) and the bamboo adds a slight sheen.

Altogether wonderful indeed.
