Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca

Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca

The softness is the first thing you'll notice when you pick up a skein of Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca (formerly named Alpaca Sport/Melange). Then the color sneaks up on you. Every shade (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.

Note: In 2016 Blue Sky Alpacas renamed their company to Blue Sky Fibers. Rest assured, same owners, same beautiful fibers. Now producing beautiful wool as well as alpaca, their new name encompasses their expanded fiber production.
