Island Wools

Blue Sky Fibers Techno

In Stock: 9


Blue Sky Fibers Techno is the perfect choice for sweaters and accessories that knit up quickly. Its sophisticated color palette never goes out of style, and the yarn is soft enough to be worn next to the skin. Modern technology makes Techno a feather-weight genius: baby alpaca is blown into a mesh tube of silk for really fast knitting with literally no splitting. 

Care
Hand wash or dry clean. Wash in tepid water using a mild soap. Do not agitate or twist. Shape and dry flat on a towel. Store your little treasure neatly folded; after all, it may be a family heirloom.
