Fyberspates Cumulus is the yarn of choice for A Year of Techniques Project 2: Intarsia.
Alpaca and silk, oh wow. These little dumplings of yarn weigh so little that they seem magical, a little impossible. How can something so ephemeral be enough to knit with?
But when we use them to make Bristol Ivy’s inventive Brambling Shawl, the result is a glorious swath of intarsia that manages to be both airy and warming at the same time.
It’s a new yarn to us, so we’re especially happy to be offering it to you. If you’ve worked with mohair/silk blends, this is even softer.
Bristol Ivy’s Brambling Shawl pattern is sold separately, and exclusively as part of the Year of Techniques series.
Note: this is for the yarn only (pattern not included). You may purchase the pattern for Project 2 as part of the ebook of A Year of Techniques, which is available at Arnall-Culliford Knitwear or print edition with ebook download code available in the MDK Shop here.
Specs & Details
There is a reason they named this stuff “Cumulus.” It’s as close to a cloud as we’ve encountered in a yarn: a tender blend of alpaca and silk that makes you want to talk very quietly and go meditate

or even lower-case italics
