As many of you have already noticed, I launched our new laceweight base earlier this week! Bow River is a 100% alpaca 2-ply laceweight yarn sourced from a small, family-owned farm in Alberta. It's a really lofty yarn, and the skeins are so soft and squishy. It knits up with a wonderful drape, especially on larger needles. I'm currently working on a small shawl in the petal colourway, and I'm loving how spring-y it feels. This base takes dye so beautifully, with a gentle semi-solid effect. All of the details about the yarn itself are now on the bases page.
