Undyed alpaca and wool merge in a plump, squishy 100 gram hank of ber scrumptiousness! Part of the MountainTop Collection of yarns spun from natural, undyed fibers, Blackthorn is the soft, chunky counterpart to worsted-weight Vista. The super fine alpaca makes pieces soft and warm, while the wool lends it strength.

A great introduction to Brioche knitting, this beanie is thick and squishy.
