Thanks to its luxurious handle and rich colour palette, award-winning Alpaca Soft DK has become a real favourite with knitters. Spun from a premium blend of extrafine Merino, superfine Merino and baby alpaca, it makes an easy choice for garments and accessories and comes into its own when worked in cable designs.
The smooth construction of Alpaca Soft DK creates a crisp colourwork fabric that is also soft and drapey. Take advantage of these properties by making the poncho Plume from the book Carousel Collection by Martin Storey. Beautiful leaf motifs give this poncho a signature look. See this piece in the Rowan trunk show video on our YouTube channel.
The Daystar Hat by Martin Storey's is a free Fair Isle pattern that uses two colors of Alpaca Soft to create a graphic pattern that's a beautiful and fun knit. Pair it with the matching snood or with the Lattice cowl for a stylish look.
Cropped sweaters are so fashionable right now! The soft and luxurious feel of this yarn is beautiful in 016 Cropped Sweater by Georgia Farrell. A simple ribbing texture, crew neck and set in sleeves make this pullover a versatile piece for your wardrobe.
The smooth warmth of this yarn complements the unisex colourwork mitten pattern Haakon by ARNE & CARLOS. These fairisle mittens are accented with contrasting colour stripes in the cuffs.
