Blue Sky Fibers began by creating consciously crafted fibers and patterns. These are more than just their focus, it’s their passion. Ever since they started with a small herd of alpacas in our backyard, they’ve been committed to making yarn in the best way possible to show off its natural beauty. And while their exclusive offerings have grown beyond alpaca to include wool, organic cotton, silk and cashmere, their desire for getting makers of all stripes excited about natural fibers and knitting hasn’t changed one bit. It all winds back to the yarn, ensuring that every precious, handmade hank is lovingly filled with endless inspiration.
YARN: Metalico is a beautiful single ply sport weight alpaca/silk blend yarn. This luxuriously soft yarn is un-dyed, and is instead offered in a range of naturally occurring alpaca shades. These subtle neutral tones are the perfect way to accentuate the metallic sheen of this lovely yarn, allowing the alpaca and silk blend's delightful qualities to take center stage.
Metalico is presented in shiny braids with all naturally occurring colors. Like taking your hands on a beautifully scenic nature hike!
