Blue Sky Alpacas Sport/Melange
The softness is the first thing you'll notice when you pick up a skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Sport Weight Melange. Then the color sneaks up on you. Every shade we've chosen (except black) has subtle complexity that's achieved either by over-dying heathered fleece or by combing together multiple dyed colors. While it's most typically used at a sport or dk weight, we love the gorgeous way it drapes at 5 stitches to the inch in our Easy Folded Poncho. Next-to-the-skin softness makes it perfect for accessories.
