    The Fibre Company Road to China Light

    Fibre Company Road to China Light is an incredibly soft blend of baby alpaca, cashmere, camel, and silk. The silk adds the slightest hint of luster to the yarn and the colors are incredible. You'll love working with this sportweight yarn. Made in Peru.

      I bought this yarn in 3 colors: pearl grey, abalone, and sapphire. The first two knit up great. My hands turned blue quickly while knitting with sapphire. I would not recommend that color or any of their deeper colors because of that. I returned that color to WEBS.

      The yarn is super squishy and soft but so are many others. I don't mind dyes bleeding a bit when washed but not while I am knitting. Until the company improves their dye process, I will buy other yarns.

            I have made scarves and hats and they turned out beautifully.

                  Comments about Fibre Company Road to China Light:

                  I used this yarn to knit a hat for my grandfather who is very sensitive to wool. He had no complaints of the hat being itchy. I have to say, this is by far my favorite yarn I've ever used. It's soft almost to the extreme and I love how the colors take on an iridescent like quality when kitted up. Only wish it weren't so expensive (though it's reasonably priced for what it is), I would use it for almost everything.

                  Service and delivery were superb as usual.

                    I am making a lace cowl with this yarn. It knits like a dream, feels wonderful, and mistakes are so easy to take out and reknit, unlike with some luxury fibers. I am really looking forward to having this around my face and neck this winter!

                      This is sumptuous yarn with an amazing texture. I am making a hat for a friend who is going through chemo and I am hoping that she is comforted by its softness and warmth.

                        Have knit up two scarves for gifts The first with lace stitches and cables for my hubbie. The second was simply garter but used color for my Dad. Both came out wonderfully. This yarn is so soft, and gets even softer after blocking. Seriously, as I knit, I kept wanting to pet the ball of yarn.

                        Wonderfully soft yarn, knits up easily and beautifully. I would give it five stars except for the uneven dye. Each skein was different and it bled out in the first wash. What started as a deep gem tone turned into a striped faded denim look.
