A Truly Special Yarn

I LOVE my Alto yarn. It is a commercial yarn. It is 55% superwash BFL wool and 45% bombyx silk. It is highly lustrous and it is has great drape. What is BFL wool? It’s wool from Blue Faced Leicester sheep. It is a long, lustrous wool. You have the luster from the silk and the luster from the silk.

Because it is superwash wool, it is also great for a next-to-the-skin garment. Superwash wools have the fibers stripped of the parts that cause prickliness.

What can you make with this yarn? Well you can make a sweater or top. You can make a wonderful scarf or shawl. You could make a baby layette too, one that’s really special like a christening outfit.

Here are the deets: 260 yards per skein, DK weight yarn, $32 per skein
