Those pretty, artistic colors are courtesy of Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock. The colorway used in the shawl is called Treasure. We have quite a few other fabulous colorways in stock as well. See?
|So many pretty colors!|
Hand Paint Sock is a delicious blend of 50% superfine alpaca, 30% merino wool, 10% silk, & 10% nylon. It comes in a 436-yd. hank (which, course, we'll gladly wind for you on our ball winder when you purchase it here).
Misti Alpaca has plenty of pattern support for this yarn on their web site. Sock-wise, the color changes of this yarn are really best displayed in simple designs like these.
Maybe the softness and fine gauge of HPS make you think about items for the little ones in your life. The Misti Alpaca web site offers this cute set for ages 1-5 years.
For those who think this yarn might be a bit too luxurious for socks or kids' stuff, how about using it in a pretty scarf? Lisa Bruce's Favorite Scarf Ever was designed with HPS in mind. It's a free Ravelry download and takes only one skein.
