Luxurious Knitting by Blue Sky Fibers

If you’re looking for gorgeous yarns and simple, modern designs, you can’t go wrong with Blue Sky Fibers (formerly Blue Sky Alpaca). All of their fibers are pure heaven to knit (or crochet) with. Here are a few of our recent favorites:

Bianca Wrap, in Alpaca Suri Merino. There are endless color combinations possible for this simple knit, and the finished product is just as delightful to wear as it is to create (one of our knitters has barely taken it off since she finished it!).

Etched Rio Wrap in Metalico. A delicate yarn with a subtle sheen. This project features a simple stockinette stitch, with a lace pattern over just the last few stitches–easy and elegant.

Sasha Wrap, in Techno. Easy and fast, this classic design couldn’t be simpler.

Come knit along: Blue Sky Fibers chunky cotton cowl!

JuneKALFullIt’s not too late to join in on the Blue Sky Fibers summer knit-a-long!

How to play? Come pick out 4 colors in gorgeous organic cotton, join the Ravelry KAL group and post a picture of your completed cowl by August 31st to be entered into Blue Sky Fiber’s contest to win yarn for another beautiful project!

We love working with this yarn, especially because how often is it that you can find a good chunky yarn that seems appropriate for summer? This one is—thick, soft, but not too warm in your hands. And the colors are gorgeous!  Plus the pattern, the Caledonia Cowl, is simple and quick. Perfect for a lazy summer day!

Happy knitting!
