Virginia Mitts Kit Using Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca
"Soft, squishy, sporty."
The charmingly uneven bands of color of the Virginia Mitts are as fun to knit as they are to wear. Designed by Virginia Sattler-Reimer for Blue Sky Fibers, these cozy mittens are knit in K2, P2 rib—soft, squishy, and sporty!
The Virginia Mitts are knit with Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca, a 100% alpaca yarn with superior softness. It’s a sport-weight yarn that is plush and cuddly. Its solid and heathered melange colors mix and match beautifully.
Blue Sky Fibers has created an adorable (and convenient!) kit for the Virginia Mitts. Each kit includes five skeins of Baby Alpaca—each a different color—and the Virginia Mitts pattern, all tucked in a cute, canvas tote.
One size: Approx. 5"/13cm circumference x 12"/30cm long.
