We unpacked a bunch of boxes from Blue Sky Alpacas today. Ooh la la. We love the juicy new colours of Alpaca Silk. With names like passionfruit, guava, lime, mango and papaya we just know you’ll be in a happy place while you knit or crochet your new Spring project.
We’re also enamoured of the 5″ rosewood needles that come in collectible tins:
These needles are polished to a brilliant luster that shows off the gorgeous grain patterns without the use of harsh chemicals. They’re handcrafted by highly trained and skilled Vietnamese artisans who work in family-owned and managed businesses that offer training and opportunity to their workers. There are six sizes, US 0 – 6 (2mm to 4.25m). The tins have a different design and colour for each size. So cute and practical as well.
There are some great new Blue Sky designs. Check out the stunning Fitted Evening Top, knit with Alpaca Silk. This would be perfect for those warmer spring and summer evenings that are just around the corner.
And we like the Tie Sweater that’s knit with Suri Merino. This wrap won the “most popular new design” at Blue Sky’s TNNA booth.
Last but not least, there’s the 1930’s Inspired Evening Gown that’s crocheted with Alpaca Silk. This gown opened the Fashion Show at the TNNA convention. It’s a gorgeous, glamourous gown, inspired by a bygone era. If you’d rather have a knee-length cocktail dress than a floor-length gown, just shorten it up. We think it would be lovely either way.
Blue Sky Alpacas greets each new season with stunning designs that never fail to inspire us. They’ve done it again with these great new styles. We can’t wait to see your finished projects.
