Light and lofty, with a springy twist. The extra yardage in the generous hanks makes it ideal for one and two hank projects. It’s a luxe mix of baby alpaca and fine merino wool in a palette of rich colours to make your next project extra-special. While gauged as an aran weight yarn, Extra lends itself to a variety of gauges and needle sizes; as the name implies, it’s got extra yardage and extra twist, making it a versatile yarn you’ll reach for again and again. It's the perfect blend for local designer, Samantha Mackay's design: the Clarissa Cabled Cowl. We are thrilled that Sam's design was picked up by Blue Sky Fibers and feel that this needs to be THE cowl for 2020!
