DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Pashmina by Madelinetosh (75% Merino Wool / 15% Silk / 10% Cashmere; 360 yds): 3 (3/4, 4, 5) Skeins. Shown in Tart
ALTERNATE YARN: Road to China Light by Fibre Co (65% Baby Alpaca / 15% Silk / 10% Camel / 10% Cashmere; 50g/169yds): 6 (7, 8, 9) Skeins. It is the most luxuriously soft, bouncy, and decadent yarn and is a pleasure to handle. The Baby Alpaca is the softest of alpaca yarns and is combined with the extra warmth of camel and cashmere with a hint of shine and strength from silk.
ALTERNATE YARN: Alpaca Silk by Blue Sky Fibers (50% Alpaca / 50% Silk; 50g/146yds): 7 (8, 9, 10) Skeins. Alpaca Silk is a more lustrous and warmer yarn than Pashmina. It is a great match for this beautiful and elegant Pullover, truly showcasing the design of ovals and cables. Alpaca has more heat retaining properties than Merino while maintaining the perfect body temperature. The silk in this yarn gives the finished garment a beautiful lustre so that it glimmers in a dimly lit room. It is deliciously soft and silky.
