The Fibre Company has developed an array of wonderful blends and Road to China is a personal favorite. It was a natural choice to show off the pattern stitch and to wear around the neck.

Road to China Light is a 3-ply strong, soft, shiny and drapey yarn with a lot of body perfect for luxurious, soft and warm items. The unique blend of fibers are spun into a smooth yarn and then kettle dyed, and the different way the fibers absorb the dye creates a beautiful depth of color with subtle heathered tones.
