Alpaca Sock - Shortcake
Shortcake is a pale yellow colorway inspired by the actual shortcake you can eat.
This is an incredibly soft 4 ply yarn that is a blend of superfine alpaca, superwash merino and nylon. This yarn is wonderful for socks, but would also be perfect for shawls and hats. As you can see from the photo, this yarn has a bit of a "hairy" halo to it, which so may find itchy but I've found it to be quite soft. It tends to take dye a little less vibrantly than my merino/nylon blends.

Multiple skeins of the same dye lot are listed at the same time. Please note, they are sold individually. To see how many are available, simply check the quantity underneath the price in the top-right corner. It is always recommended when knitting with two or more skeins of hand-dyed yarn to alternate each skein every few rows.
Yarn is dyed in a smoke free/pet-friendly home.
Hand dyed with professional acid dyes & may bleed slightly upon first wash.
I do my best to show the true colors of the yarn but as all monitors vary yarn may look slightly different on your screen.
