At Stix & Stones we are proud to retail the wonderful hand knitting yarns and stylish patterns from Berroco Yarns.
A particular favourite quality is Berroco Ultra Alpaca, a soft blend of 50% Alpaca + 50% Peruvian Highland Wool, dyed into a huge range of 50+ colours.
Ultra Alpaca is put up in 3.5oz/100g skeins with 215yds/198m.
Of course with the talent of Norah Gaughan and Cirillia Rose leading the in-house design team, wonderful patterns for all members of the family are published in booklets available for purchase at Stix & Stones and they balance this nicely with free patterns on the Berroco website.
Some of our favourites are:
Rayeures: a flattering stripe pullover with a nicely draped, scoop neckline featuring horizontal stripes women of all sizes can wear.
Avocet B: Looking to branch out from knitting accessories, this stylish jacket is worked all in Garter Stitch and has wonderful, contemporary styling for women of all ages.
Faber, from Norah Gaughan Volume 5 features this great thermal stitch, sure to be a year round fave.
For the guys there is Andoa, worked in an alternating knit + purl stitch pattern, not too complicated but with enough variation to keep you motivated to the end.
Ursa is a great jacket with easy styling worked up simply in Ultra Alpaca.
Finally, to help keep your Crochet Hooks, Sock Needles or Accessories in order, there is this easy to make Kluster clutch, a wee project to help keep everything in it's place!
