Blue Sky Alpacas Techno

Blue Sky Alpacas Techno is a modern take on 1970’s neon and natural. The line includes seven bright colors perfectly balanced with six wonderful neutrals. Modern technology makes Techno a feather-weight genius: baby alpaca is blown into a mesh tube of silk for really fast knitting with literally no splitting. Made in Italy.

          Making the Moscow coat, knits up quickly, can't stop petting the yarn as I use it. Will definitely be using Blue Sky products in the future.

                      This yarn held up with repeated knitting and frogging as I experimented to make the
                      "perfect" gift scarf requested. The color chacha red was rich and the yarn was soft and luxurious.
                      The end product had great stitch definition with no sign of the wear and tear I had put this yarn through.

                      I'm making the Sasha Wrap and its turning out well. I can't wait until its done and ready to wear. Yarn is much nicer then pictured online. Works up well.

                        I made a lace pattern scarf with this wool. It was exactly as the description said. It has a 'wooly' quality but it was very smooth to work and flowed nicely across the needles without dragging. Very enjoyable to work with.

                            One of my favorite yarns so far: warm, good stitch definition and I love the cha cha red my yarn came in. Made a beret out of it on US 10.5 needles and it turned out lovely!

                            f.ex. club grey is a great dark and rich shade of grey. this can be a dull colour but is not because tiny areas are slightly lighter and catch the light which gives it a very vibrant look
