    Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino

    Our friends at Blue Sky Alpacas describe this yarn as opulent meets orthodox, and that certainly fits this yarn is both basic and precious. A silky, itch-free combination of baby suri alpaca and the softest merino wool, the single-ply yarn will sing in textured or plain knitting. Made in Peru.

    Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino:

    This is a very soft barley twisted yarn - it splits, I would recommend bamboo or wooden needles with blunt tips for faster knitting. It feels like the underbelly of a baby rabbit when you are knitting with it, it is sensual and worth slowing down and enjoying the knit.

          I have used this yarn alone for sweaters and in combination with other yarns for scarves. It holds the stitches beautifully and has a great "spring" to it!

            Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino:

            I've been intrigued by Blue Sky Alpacas FOR YEARS! This is the first BSA product I've ever purchased (other than Spud & Chloe Sweater, which I also LOVE) & based on this experience, I'll RUSH to try more yarns by BSA. The texture of this yarn is GORGEOUS, softer than marshmallows and clouds. My colorway (411 Cloud) is just as kitten-soft and beautiful as the texture. BTW, if you were lucky enough to snag a Free People "5 Layer Maxi Skirt" in the PALE pastel blue-grey color (sold out now -- they only have "washed black" left on sale), the Cloud colorway in this yarn coordinates PERFECTLY. I love this yarn in general PLUS the Cloud colorway solved my design problem of what-in-the-world-am-I-going-to-wear-with-this-unbelievably-beautiful-skirt-in-such-a-startlingly-gorgeous-but-offbeat-color. (Not quite powder-blue...but not quite palest-dove-grey either...pretty much halfway in between the two, SO soft & beautiful.)

              There isn't a hat pattern that I have made that hasn't looked beautiful in this yarn. I only wish there was a brown.

                Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino:

                4-1/2 stars! I love the yarns from Blue Sky Alpacas and this was no exception. The colors are lovely and the texture of the yarn is wonderful. I loved handling and knitting with it. The only reason I docked it a half star is that in stranded colorwork the working yarn tends to entangle itself and try to weld with the other strands (I'm using 3 colors at the moment). On the other hand, that means that the ends will weave in easily and stay put.

                Wonderfully Soft Single ply

                Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino:

                This yarn is absolutely wonderful. It is very soft - like butter, has great drape, very easy to knit with and can withstand being ripped back and knitted again. Holds up very well. I just noticed the price change - $3.00 per skein more than when I bought mine. I would still buy this yarn -even with the price increase. Love this Yarn!
