Introducing Chateau & Chalet

We are delighted to have Chateau & Chalet from Classic Elite Yarns arrive in the shop this week! A mid-winter stash pick me up, these yarns are an exquisitely soft blend of baby alpaca and bamboo.  What fun to find a chunky weight yarn that is light as a feather and so soft its like knitting a kitten!

The chainette construction provides strength and lightness while the fiber content create enviable drape in a chunky weight.  Chalet is available in undyed, natural colors and Chateau features saturated, vibrant colors.

Projects to consider: knit up a fast one or two skein hat on US#10-11 needles, a beautiful two skein cowl, or go all out and knit a shawl

Fiber Content: 70% baby alpaca, 30% bamboo/

Gauge: 3-3½ sts/inch US 10-11 (6-8 mm) needle
