Beautiful for weaving or knitting, Herriot Fine Alpaca by Juniper Moon Farm Yarn by Juniper Moon is just the thing for those who love alpaca. This fine alpaca is blended with a bit of polyamide so it is strong enough for socks or gloves and holds its shape nicely. The softness and ample yardage will make you want to weave a scarf, knit a shawl or even stitch up a lightweight yet warm sweater or cowl. Herriot Fine is dyed on a natural base for slightly heathered colors that combine beautifully with each other or look amazing on their own. Try it in place of lace weight cashmere or silks for a luxurious and still affordable indulgence!
If you’d like to mix Herriot Fine Alpaca by Juniper Moon Farm Yarn with a variegated yarn, try Knitting Fever Painted Desert Yarn. They are a very close match in gauge so the two work well together or can be used interchangeably in patterns. We especially like them woven together with one in warp and the other in weft – the combo makes a great plain weave scarf!
