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 made 10 fingerless mitts, one Norro Hat, and a matching cowl. Everyone loved the softness and the feel of luxury.

            I needed just a bit more yarn to finish a project somImordered her. Quick delivery; exactly same lot, texture and color. Very very pleased. The yarn is decadently soft and delicate which makes working with it a bit of a challenge and one must pay good attention to cables, etc., however the attention lays off in a lovely item.

              I bought this yarn for the basalt scarf, and it is wonderful! Super soft, a nice shine, makes a nice drapey fabric. I will definitely be ordering this again!

                I am using this yarn for a scarf. It has such a nice soft feel and it is beautiful to knit. The dye is muted, not harsh. No shedding at all.

                  I have purchased several skeins with which to make cowl which are close fitting to the neck. As these will be Christmas gifts, I wanted something which the gift recipient would want to use. Soft, snuggly, good yardage for these projects. Cannot rate this yarn any higher.
