Kelbourne Perennial

If you need a neon pink fingering yarn, we have you covered. The Kelbourne Woolens Perennial is a really vibrant superwash merino/alpaca blend with just enough nylon to give it some strength. Between the nylon and the superwash, you can make some really cool socks with this stuff! Maybe some mustard yellow and hot pink stripes?
If it's not socks you're after, there are so many other options. I love the delicate colorwork on this Stonecrop Pullover.

How about this Soldotna Crop?

I've been longing for an Oslo Hat. You'd need to hold the Perennial with some silk mohair for that magical halo. Do I need a hot pink one or a more subtle one like this pretty hat?

I think we should all make one. Which color do you like best?
