New Yarn Alert -- Techno from BLue Sky Alpaca

Even in the middle of the summer, we are bringing in new yarns for the Fall and Winter.  The newest yarn from our favorite, BLue Sky Yarns, is Techno. 

Techno is a luxurious blend of 68% baby alpaca / 10% extra fine merino / 22% silk.  It is a a modern take on 1970’s neon and natural, the line includes seven groovy pop colors perfectly balanced with six granola-lover neutrals. Modern technology makes Techno a feather-weight genius: baby alpaca is blown into a mesh tube of silk for really fast knitting with literally no splitting.
