A good yarn for Jacob

This yarn is from Blue Sky Alpacas (my favorite of course!) It is 100% baby alpaca in a sport weight. It knits up to be thin and lightweight, but very warm. I think it would do well for some color patterning. This is just a sampling of colors I think might be nice in combination. Rich and harvesty, with a punch of excitement!Wouldn't it be sooooooooo nice to line your neck with a nice cashmere?


Or perhaps include baby camel?


Manos Del Uruguay is beautiful and also supports/sustains a cooperative of women.




This yarn is called Pemaquid by the Fiber Company in Maine! I'm not sure if the blended colors would work, but the yarn sure is gorgeous!

Manos would be a great outside yarn for the top part. It's variegated so it'll have a nice texture and color depth. The top three colors are my favorite too. Gold, pistachio & peach, then of course RED!
