Avert Your Eyes

Seriously, this yarn is so pretty it might hurt.  Say hello to Malabrigo Silkpaca in some stunning colors.
This is a true lace weight done up in alpaca and silk.  I had one lucky knitter take two skeins home for a Les Miserables Scarf last week.  The silk will resist the felting, leaving tiny boucle-like loops on the surface.  The effect is really beautiful.  And in this subtly tonal's going to be amazing.  Let's have another shot, shall we?
Yup.  It's still pretty.
