More yarn love at Art of Yarn
The new yarns keep coming in the door and we want to share some of our favourites with you.
We just received boxes of yarn from Berroco and we all fell in love with their new yarn Andean Mist.
Andean Mist is an ethereal blend of super fine baby suri alpaca and mulberry silk for luxe knits that knit up light as air. It really is rather heavenly and we have to thank the Suri Alpaca for providing us with such a nice fibre. How wonderful they have renewable coats of such luscious fibre that spins up into light, lofty, silky goodness.
