Gorgeous handpainted yarns provide a rainbow of colors to top off any look.

RUFFLED BOLERO
Misti Alpaca’s Handpaint Chunky, was the inspiration for this design. Each colorway is so fabulous that it was hard to pick just one. I ended up choosing two that have some minor colors in common to tie them together visually. Black-and-white trim in Chunky creates the perfect edging.
