Berroco North Star

We have gone all in with the fluffy natural yarns this season. I think you all are going to like what we have. 
We received Berroco's North Star last week, and we are already selling out of some colors. Mostly because of this sample.
Burrow has caused more than one knitter to lose all self control in an attempt to fondle its fluffy goodness. The herringbone pattern adds just the right amount of interest, but it doesn't take away from the gorgeous texture of the yarn.
North Star is almost a like a braided boucle...really unusual. It's mostly alpaca, with just enough nylon to hold it together. Knitting up at 3.75 stitches per inch on a US10.5, anything you knit with this yarn is going to fly off the needles. 
The pattern book has almost sold out, but I think most of these are available online if you can't wait for us to restock. There are several lovely pieces in the booklet, including Haven, Cocoon, and Snug. The hat on the cover is cute, too.
This is just the beginning of our natural color palette for fall, and it's a winner for sure. I'll keep you posted as more neutral beauties roll into the shop.
