A yarn a day (3) - BC Garn Baby Alpaca

Day three of my Danish yarns...and the delicious BC Garn Baby Alpaca. Every time I pick up a skein of this yarn I get reminded of fairy floss. It is super, super soft and it makes you want to give it a cuddle (in fact I have done that!) I'm going to make Mr Hausfrau a wintry hat out of it, and a lacy scarf for moi!

There is a monstrous 500m yardage on each hank, which would be enough for a scarf or shawl depending upon the pattern.

I will point out that it was very hard to take photos that would do this yarn justice, and one colourway in particular the red (au08) is much more burgundy/ruby red in real life.

Don't forget to pop back on Friday when I'll be announcing a bit of a treat for my readers.

So, as before - details are:

Weight: Light fingering/3-ply
Unit: 100g
Yardage: 500m/547 yds
Needle Size: 2-3 mm
Tension 31 stitches to 10cm/4 in
Fibre: Baby alpaca
Texture: Plied


  1. I LOVE this yarn! I can't stop thinking about it since I copped a feel on Monday! I'm thinking I might have to make a shawl - maybe percy like this one:
    Or Ishbel
    So pretty! xo

  2. Like Kuka, I haven't stopped thinking about since Monday either! Am rather fond of the denimmy blue one. For a shawl, of course.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog...I especially love it when I get comments. Have a great day, suzy xoxo
