Fresco is a smooth and even 3-ply sport weight yarn. The plies are twisted together tightly enough to make a firm, springy yarn, but not so tightly that the yarn looses its lofty, soft hand. The fiber blend—wool (for warmth
and strength), alpaca (for loft and sheen), and a bit of angora (to provide a soft halo)—makes a yarn that’s warm, soft, and slightly fuzzy. Fresco is available in many colors, which makes it great for colorwork
projects. However as you can see from this weeks project, the yarn is also beautiful worked up in solid-color lacy patterns on a larger needle.
