Modern Wrapper Project - Alpaca2/KSH Version
We chose Isager Alpaca Merino 2 to pair with Rowan Kidsilk Haze in this version of the Modern Wrapper for its incredible silky softness. The fabric is light, just a bit sheer and offers amazing drape. You'll appreciate the wearable warmth of the finished fabric (even indoors), and with so many luscious yet muted colors to choose from, you just can't go wrong.
Grab the pattern below, and then select your color from the combinations we tried and loved. Or visit the Isager Alpaca Merino 2 and Rowan Kidsilk Haze pages to choose your own colors. And don't forget to swatch!
