DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Canopy Fingering by Fibre Company (50% Alpaca / 30% Merino / 20% Rayon from Bamboo; 50g/200yds) 10 (11, 13) Skeins. Shown in Cloud Forest. This yarn has a slight heathered effect and is silky soft. PRE-ORDER available in all 21 colors. Please contact us prior to placing order to check color availability since these yarns are imported from Europe and may be backordered. Please allow at least 10 business days for shipping to your location.
ALTERNATE YARN: Herriot Fine by Juniper Moon Farm (75% Baby Alpaca /25% Polyamide; 100g/461yds): 5 (5, 6) Skeins. Use Travertine to most closely match the photographs. Herriot Fine is a beautiful USA made substitute for Canopy Fingering. The high content of Baby Alpaca creates wonderful softness and drape while the Polyamide (aka nylon) provides extra sheen and strength. PRE-ORDER now available in all 22 colors. Please contact us prior to placing order to check color availability, and allow at least 10 business days for shipping to your location.
ALTERNATE YARN: Silkpaca by Malabrigo (70% Baby Alpaca /30% Silk; 50g/420yds): 9 (11, 12) Skeins. The color Polar Morn matches the Canopy Fingering yarn the closest. This yarn must be held double to get the proper thickness since it is a laceweight yarn instead of sock weight. Please check your gauge and make a swatch before starting the project. Silkpaca is a shimmery, kitten soft yarn in the most beautiful array of colors. Please make sure to buy all of your skeins in one purchase to guarantee color continuity. Dye lots can vary noticeably in a finished garment.
