Everything in our shop is 15% off during July, our Annual Inventory Sale! All month, I’ll be shining a spotlight on the yarns we have in stock – today, let’s look at Isager Alpaca 3!
Isager Alpaca 3:
- bulky weight
- chainette construction
- 50% alpaca, 50% wool
- 137 yards/50 grams
- $10 each
This yarn has tremendous elasticity, making it a pleasure to work with and surely a pleasure to wear. The label doesn’t have any recommendation for needle size or gauge, so Anne got out a pair of US 10 needles and started swatching. She did a little garter stitch, a little stockinette, a few other texture patterns, and still wanted to keep knitting – a good sign! After blocking, the gauge in stockinette measures about 4 stitches per inch, though a range of 3.5 – 4.5 stitches per inch is also appropriate for this yarn.
What to knit with Isager Alpaca 3? Here are some ideas!
- “Brampton,” by Tamy Gore – cabled cowl
- “Half & Half Cowl,” by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas – ribbed split cowl
- “Getting Warmer,” by Espace Tricot – garter stitch cowl with ribbed edge
