Blue Sky Worsted Cotton


We have a fresh supply of Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton in the best colors.


I recently used this yarn for the Chevron Baby Blanket, and the final product is squishy and spectacular.  (I skipped the bright white in the center and went with six stripes rather than seven.)

The blanket is knit on US11s with the yarn held doubled, so it knits up quickly.  Come put together your favorite color combo!

    1. One of each color, so 6 all together!
