This is Alpaca Cloud in left to right: Stream, Autumn, Tidepool and Moss. It is a lace weight baby Alpaca yarn and is soooooo SOFT! It's almost as soft as cashmere. Each hank is $3.99 and 440 yards which is enough to do most scarves. The Autumn and the Moss are already planned as gifts for special friends who I won't name in case they might read on here. The Autumn will be in a lace smoke ring and the Moss is going to be for a Margaret Ann Hallas Oak Leaf scarf pattern. When I start them I will definitely photograph and place on my blog. I have done lace before, mainly scarves, but never with lace weight yarn. All the knitters are calling this The Summer of Lace...so I guess I am joining in!
