Cerise & The Fibre Company

I’m using the Curls preorder to introduce the patterns and yarns from the book. I’ll be featuring a new pair each day. Most of the yarn companies have donated lovely prizes, so come back every day to see what’s new!
 Cerise in Road to China Light from The Fibre Co.

And this yarn is a perfect fit for the piece.  The alpaca makes it fabulously warm (even though the fabric is very open and airy).  And the mix of fibers (alpaca, silk, camel, and cashmere) plus the construction (3 softly spun plies, loosely brought together) gives the yarn a wonderful slinky, drapey feel.  It blocks beautifully (and you will want to block this one rather vigorously), and of course the color is smashing.  This was my first time working with yarn from The Fibre Company, but I suspect it won’t be the last!
