The Peruvian alpaca is in its natural black while the silk/merino blend is in a pallet of colors that include magentas, golds and blues. It shimmers in the light and is soft and warm. A real beauty as the colors spiral up the Nekker and give it a different look from every angle.

Alpaca and Merino Nekker trimmed in Angora
A black Peruvian superfine alpaca yarn has been coupled with a colorful yarn from Montana that's all different shades of reds. Trimming this soft Nekker is a handspun and kettle-dyed angora fur yarn from South America that will bloom a lot and create a wonderful halo at both ends.

Alpaca, Mohair and Wool Four Corners Pussy Cap
Sometimes unusual yarns can end up being really cool when mixed with other yarns, and that's a lot of what I do with Pussy Caps - I mix and match yarns until I get something that I really like. In this case a tiny strand of teal mohair set the stage for the other two yarns in the body of the cap. Its companions are a natural colored Peruvian alpaca tweed and a multi-colored thin strand of German wool. The patterns and color shifts are subtle but really really beautiful. The mohair made it a little too scratchy for the ears and forehead so I added an inside band crocheted from two different natural black alpaca yarns: brushed baby alpaca and superfine alpaca. All the softness you need next to the forehead and ears is right there in those two yarns. This Four Corners Pussy Cap will have a slightly smaller and tighter fit than most, making it ideal for boarders or people who are active and really need that cap to stay put on their head. 160.00+ 6.00 shipping
Alpaca, Merino, Mohair and Wool Four Corners Pussy Cap
Four distinctly different yarns form the basis for this big thick Four Corners Pussy Cap. The end result is a fabric that looks like mahogany with lots of subtle shifts in color. (The pink yarn is mush more subtle in person than in the picture.) The four yarns are: natural black superfine alpaca from Peru`, a tiny thread of eggplant mohair, a handpainted merino yarn from Uruguay and a thin strand of pale pink wool. It's one of the more unusual combinations I've done and I think it turned out really nice. On the inside is a band of brushed baby alpaca and black superfine alpaca, both from Peru`. They have been charged with keeping things soft and comfortable around your forehead and ears and they do their job well.

Brown Peruvian Alpaca with Handpainted Merino
An understated Pussy Cap with two beautiful yarns - the first being a natural brown Peruvian alpaca and the second a richly colored merino wool that's been spun and handpainted in the US. It's soft and warm and durable and will provide many years of warmth and protection. This is a classic beanie cap style with an easy fit for anybody's head because of the natural stretch of the yarns and the inherent stretch of the crocheting.
