New in store: Road to China Light August 9, 2012 – Posted in: New in Store, Project Ideas

Espace Tricot is thrilled to be one of a handful of Canadian retailers now stocking The Fibre Company’s Road to China Light – a buttery-soft 3-ply blend of 65% baby alpaca, 15% silk, 10% camel, and 10% cashmere. This “shiny and drapey yarn with a lot of body is perfect for luxurious, soft and warm items. The unique blend of fibers are spun into a smooth yarn and then kettle dyed, and the different way the fibers absorb the dye creates a beautiful depth of color with subtle heathered tones.”  Available in store now in 18 luscious colourways!

– 159 yds/145 m per 50 gram skein
– 24-26 sts = 4 inches on US 3-4 Needle (3.25 – 3.5 mm)
