Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky - A Yarn Tasting

Visit us on Saturday, October 13th for our yarn tasting featuring  
Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky.

Bulky is a blend of 50% alpaca / 50% wool in 45 yard skeins weighing in at 45 grams with a recommended needle size of a US 15 / 10mm for a gauge of 2 stitches per inch – there’s a reason Blue Sky Alpacas named it Bulky.


Bulky is, without-a-doubt, a favorite of ours for fast and fun knitting. Smooth and silky soft, this lightly spun blend feels almost like roving yet still offers spectacular stitch definition. It’s all wrapped up in a fantastic color palette that ranges from wintery pastels to punchy saturated hues. 

You have to try it for yourself and you can at our yarn tasting!
