Blue Sky Fibers has blended their scrumptiously soft baby alpaca with lustrous mulberry silk to create Metalico. The natural shades of alpaca are undyed, and the silk gives a sheen reminiscent of precious metal. Knit on a larger needle, this gorgeous yarn will make lovely lacey projects with fabulous drape. On a smaller needle, Metalico acts like a sport weight and knits up into a more substantial fabric for light, warm sweaters and hats. A great choice for everyday luxury!
