We are so very proud to introduce our newest yarn line: Americana by The Alpaca Yarn Company. Americana will be, what we hope, is a series of yarn that is 100% American grown, produced and dyed. We’ve started small, only one offering, but, baby, it is a good one!
Balance, harmony, rhythm. Equality, evenness, shapeliness. Symmetry.
One word can mean so many things. For us Symmetry is not only the perfect balance of Baby Alpaca and fine wool from Columbia Sheep, but also a bridge between our two biggest assets ~ Our amazing Retail Stores and the American Alpaca Farmers that helped get this fiber into production.
Many times I hear from knitters “You can’t knit something that is 100% alpaca”. In some cases that’s a correct statement. Certain wearables can get too heavy and stretch when made with 100% alpaca.
But I also hear from the farmers “Ewww, wool – I don’t want that in my yarn”. That makes me sad because as a fiber person, I love almost all fibers and if done correctly they can truly compliment each other.
So Symmetry to us is the meshing together of these 2 worlds. We want everyone to love this yarn. Because the grade of wool and alpaca are similar, the fibers compliment each other and make the perfect yarn. The wool adds to the light, lofty feel, the alpaca adds luxury and softness. The weight is a 2-ply Sport, which makes it perfect for light-weight garments, shawls and other accessories.
Symmetry is available in 18 colors; natural white and 17 amazing kettle-dyed shades. The palette was designed to work together across the whole. Mix, match, go wild! The 2-ply is fantastic for textured stitches and the colors, perfect for all color-work options! It is presented in 50g hanks and each hank is 150 yds.
We hope you love it as much as we do!
