About the yarn: Made by Schachenmayr it is 25% wool, 30% Alpaca and 45% polyamide. Each skein is 124 yds, 25g.
Designers note: I really enjoyed working with this yarn, it was soft and has a lovely drape, yummy to touch and very easy to knit with. The Alpaca and wool makes for an exceedingly soft finished project. I love the palette of colors, very warm and soft. Here is the website information: http://us.schachenmayr.com/yarns/soft-mix
