Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace

Classic Elite Yarns
Silky Alpaca Lace Scarf
Silky Alpaca Lace
70% alpaca, 30% silk
Silky Alpaca Lace is a lace-weight blend of 70% alpaca and 30% silk. The alpaca lends a
soft halo to the yarn and provides warmth; silk adds a subtle sheen to the knittied fabric
and dresses up the stitches. Worked in a lace pattern with larger needles, it makes a lovely,
light-as-air garment.
Silky Alpaca Lace comes in 16 colors: the palette includes soft, sensuous misty shades and
neutrals, and rich saturated colors as well.
