Malabrigo Silkpaca is a luxury, lace-weight yarn that knits up into wonderful lightweight drapey scarves, shawls, wraps, and many other projects. The baby alpaca is from Peru; the silk is from China. The baby alpaca has enough halo to allow the use of bigger needles for bigger gauge, easier lace. The colors are subtly variable and deep.
