Bye, Bye, Baby Alpaca

Have you read the news?! Shibui Knits Baby Alpaca is being discontinued. This is a bittersweet moment. I’m not ready to say farewell to this soft, drapey yarn that is the epitome of pure comfort. The vibrant colors will keep your eyes glued to Baby Alpaca and the snuggle-worthy softness will be irresistible in your hands. If you haven’t had the chance to knit with Baby Alpaca, do so while you can. For those who have knit with this plush yarn, stock up now!

As a treat for all the yarn lovers out there, all Shibui Knits Baby Alpaca is 30% off!  

Here are a few projects to enjoy while knitting with your new yarn:

Textured Shawl Recipe - This is a free pattern that I’ve been wanting to knit for a long time. Everyone has tweaked their recipe in little ways to make amazing shawls with the perfect amount of texture. If you get a chance I suggest perusing all the completed projects for this pattern on Ravelry.

Jul Hat - So many hats, so little time. I love slouchy beanies and this one is no exception, the simple texture makes this a chic little number.

Geometry | Isosceles - I think I might have a texture theme going with all the projects I’m mentioning.  I’m so happy I bought this pattern! I’ve had it in my queue for a while and I saw a completed version in the store last month and it’s fantastic. It calls for 5-7 skeins of Baby Alpaca depending on the size, so watch out, because I’m about to make a large purchase before the colors I’m eyeing are no longer available.
