The Best Time of Year for Merino, Cashmere and Alpaca

  • Purple, pink, green and yellow yarn.

February is the month that I really enjoy winter and the snow. I make the most of it by enjoying the outdoors a little by getting my cross country skiing on, and enjoying the indoors a lot by knitting by the fire with a cup of hot tea.

February is the best time of year to enjoy all the cozy luxury fibers like extra fine Merino, Cashmere and alpaca.

I have listed limited quantities of Wayfarer fingering (80% extra fine Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% nylon) and Snow City Yarns SOCK (60% extra fine Merino, 20% baby alpaca, 20% nylon) in the shop. Peruse through seventeen different colors of this gorgeous base to find the ones perfect for your future projects.

The second yarn going up in the shop this month will be nine colors of SOCK. We’re talking a fabulous blend of fine Merino Superwash and Peruvian baby alpaca here! My daughter, Megan, lives in Salt Lake City and she dyes these stunning skeins using (drum roll) Landscape Dyes, also available in 90 colors on the site.

WayfaringYarns and Snow City Yarns are Sweater Sisters’ in-house yarn lines, hand dyed by Selena in Alta, Wyoming, and daughter Megan in Salt Lake City, Utah.
