The Yarn

70% Baby Alpaca • 30% Bamboo

Like its namesake, Vail is pure luxury; unlike its namesake, it won't cost you a fortune! A light fingering designed to be used for garments and accessories, Vail is 70% baby alpaca and 30% bamboo viscose. The bamboo gives it the most delicate luster and drape, while the alpaca contributes an ethereal softness.

Ebony & Ivory – four more designs in Vail

Ebony & Ivory is our first ever pattern booklet dedicated to Vail and Vail alone. Just like Amy's design today, we see lace when petting Vail. However, it looks great in a variety of stitches as shown in designs pictured above (clockwise from the top left): Brown Sugar, an easy striped pullover worked form the buttom up; A White Shade of Pale is a lightweight lace wrap that scruches up and can be work as a scarf; Brown Eyed Girl is an easy-to-knit wrap worked entirely in garter stitch with texture created by alternating between very small and very large needles; Touch of Grey is an unstructered jacket with crochet granny square sleeves and front edges.

Ebony & Ivory is available in local yarns stores and the patterns are also available online as individual PDF downloads.
