Fibre Content: 50% alpaca, 50% Rambouillet wool
Skein: 198 yards/188 meters per 112g skein
Construction/Texture: woolen spun plied

My Thoughts: This yarn blooms like no other thanks to the alpaca content and woolen spun structure. The finished fabric has a velvety soft halo with a cohesive, warm, and squishy texture. It's got more drape than is common for woolen spun yarns, but is still very sturdy, particularly at a tighter gauge. See the last swatch image for what it looks like with some texture - subtle and rustic.
What I might design with it: I participated in last year's Hinterland Straits collection with Halyard and Camber, both knit up in Range, and I'm excited to be currently finalizing a pullover for this year's Straits collection.
