I have just discovered an incredibly gorgeous yarn. “Luxury as nature intended! Naturally occurring shades of baby alpaca blended with mulberry silk create an undyed shimmering palette of gleaming whites to silvery grays and flecked golds” well said and done by Blue Sky Alpacas. The shade platinum photographed below is a divine grey-brown. It comes in 50 g skeins with approximately 134 m/147 yds, consisting of 50% alpaca and 50% mulberry silk, recommended knitting needles are 3.25 to 3.75 mm/US 3 to 5. I love how it feels on my hand, like stroking a tiny kitten. I can not show you what I am knitting at the moment, but it will be revealed this autumn.
