This yarn, named after the concentric circles of gradient color, is fun and very special. Our customers love the hearts in the center of each cake.
We get lots of comments on the softness of this yarn as knitters try on the Lotus poncho sample that is on display in our studio. Concentric is baby alpaca fiber and baby fiber (think kid mohair) is really soft. Baby fiber is usually first or second clip from an animal.
Concentric comes in 200 gram “cakes,” ready for knitting. The working yarn is made up of four 2-ply strands that are barely twisted. It is this lack of twist in addition to the the fiber (Concentric is 100% baby alpaca) that gives the yarn a soft, gentle feel.
Use Concentric for shawls, cowls, and scarves. Think lace patterns and openwork. Your knitting will be cozy and elegant.
