Last week I shared with you that Margaret and Shelagh from Three Sisters Knit stopped by our table at KYAFF (Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival). We had a lovely chat and while we were chatting, Shelagh fell in love with one of our skeins of baby alpaca, cashmere and silk yarn. I wasn’t surprised as this yarn is super soft and wonderful in every way. Yes, I am a little biased 😉 but I’m not the only one who loves this yarn! The baby alpaca and cashmere give the yarn a beautiful soft texture and the silk gives it a beautiful sheen. To see Shelagh’s review of my yarn and the shawl she is making with it check out this snippet from their podcast and don’t forget to subscribe to their YouTube channel.

Part of my job is creating test knits with the yarns I dye and sell. I made the beautiful Rosewater Shawl with this yarn and even though it is a lacy shawl, the baby alpaca keeps my shoulders warm on cold days. I loved working with this yarn. It is a delight to have this super soft and silky yarn slide through your fingers as you knit and the drape and feel of the fabric it creates is amazing.
