Silky Alpaca Lace is a lace-weight blend of alpaca and silk. The alpaca lends a soft halo to the yarn and provides warmth; silk adds a subtle sheen to the knittied fabric and dresses up the stitches. Worked in a lace pattern with larger needles, it makes lovely, light-as-air shawls, garments and accessories. Silky Alpaca Lace's palette includes soft, sensuous misty shades, neutrals, and rich saturated colors.
