All Creatures Great and Small

Our last introduction for Juniper Moon Farm Yarns is the lovely Herriot 100% Alpaca wool.  The softness is incredible and I loved how it knit up when I worked on the Zane Shawl by Ambrah O’Brien. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/zane-shawl

If you are going to knit with Herriot or any 100% Alpaca yarn, I would recommend you use it for projects that will tolerate a little stretch …..100% Alpaca will “grow” a bit as you wear it! http://www.docknits.ca/collections/yarns-we-love/products/juniper-moon-herriot

 

Playing with Fire, on Ravelry designed a lovely Dapple Cowl using only one ball of Herriot.  (Herriot has 218 yds so not skimpy). It is cabled and really shows off the drape of the Alpaca yarn. This is a free pattern….thank you!

Lastly, the Whittier pullover by Alison Green would be a joy to wear.  I love the neckline shape and pattern…totally reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn.  I would probably keep it the original length in case it lengthens a bit.  purrrrrrrrrrr
