When I introduced Caspian — my new Merino, alpaca and nylon fingering — at the Indie Untangled Rhinebeck Trunk Show in October, I was hoping people would love it as much as I do. The response was a definitive yes! so I’ve expanded the range to include 20 colors, with more on the way.

The base is so soft, with a beautiful, subtle halo that enhances the appeal of mellow, dusty colors as well as saturated, old-fashioned ones, so I’ve created more than a dozen of these. It’s equally effective for muted variegated combos so there are handful of those to coordinate with the solids. As if that weren’t enough, it takes speckles like a dream, so I’ve added some of those and even a few combinations of variegated with speckles.

Caspian is perfect for your new spring sweaters and I love how it looks in stranded knitting. It’s just as suitable for cold weather accessories and the nylon content means you can even use it for socks.
