This silk and alpaca blend yarn might as well be named "Luxury". It never fails to elixit ooohs and aaahhhs when handled in the store. Alpaca and Silk is warmer than pure wool, yet allows your skin to breath!
The Cloud Chaser vest is delicately cabled and dramatically draped. The back features full cables, knit from hem to neck. The fronts are knit side to side, with a single cable detail near the edge. But the collar is the highlight here; wide and cabled and framing the neckline perfectly. This seasonless layer is great over tanks, tees, or long sleeves. Equally great with jeans or even something more dressy, it’s the perfect wardrobe extender.
