Stix and Stones has in stock all 8 new shades of Ultra Alpaca Tonal - a subtle tone-on-tone dye effect in their most popular hand knitting yarn.
Ultra Alpaca is a personal favourite, with a superb blend of 50% Peruvian Highland Wool + 50% Alpaca, creating a hand knitting yarn with excellent stitch definition and wonderful colours in a Worsted Weight yarn.
|Free Berroco Pattern: Runcorn|
Ultra Alpaca Tonal creates a unique addition to the many colours of the Ultra Alpaca line in stock at Stix and Stones.
|Free Berroco Pattern: Bascom|
With Berroco's generous free patterns featuring Ultra Alpaca, quick and easy gifts and personal knitting projects are the perfect choice for sampling Ultra Ulpaca Tonal.
I love the Ostrom Cowl which is a free pattern taking just 3 skeins of the new Ultra Alpaca Tonal to make. Sweet!

Ultra Alpaca Tonal is also a great choice for cabled projects like Lambe, a free hand bag pattern needing 3 skeins to make.
And the very popular Brea Bag!
