This bulky art yarn was hand spun from uncarded locks of hand-dyed Suri alpaca, in shades of blue and purple, combined with locks of silver and dark grey locks of Mohair. It is plied with a light blue Cotton crochet thread and has fluffy tuffs of fiber and wispy curls protruding. It is soft and wonderful to work and can be knit, crocheted, woven, or worn as is!
Art yarn can be knit or crocheted into most interesting hats, scarves, and cowls, using a very large hook or needles. I would suggest 11+ needles or hook size M-13+. I have made purses, headbands, lariats, and most commonly use it as an accent with other yarns. Weavers love the texture that is gives interspersed with other yarns. A skein of art yarn also makes a very unique gift for a fiber friend!
