Isager Alpaca Merino 2
A knitter's favorite all year 'round. This blend of alpaca and wool sings; alpaca adds drape and a soft halo, while wool offers memory and structure. Artfully chosen by Danish designer Marianne Isager, the color palette is quiet and calm, and the range mixes beautifully with Isager Wool 1. See our Easy Folded Poncho Project for more information on this pairing.
Soft enough to wear next to the skin, we love Alpaca Merino 2 for accessories, or for baby. It worked so splendidly for our Diagonal Lace Scarf (see below) that now we're making up our Barb's Koigu Ruffle, Crocheted Moebius Cowl and Baby Wrap Sweater in Alpaca Merino 2. That should keep us busy!
