Like its namesake, Vail is pure luxury; unlike its namesake, it won’t cost you a fortune! A light fingering weight designed to be used for garments and accessories, Vail is 70% baby alpaca and 30% bamboo. The bamboo gives it the most delicate luster and drape, while the alpaca contributes an ethereal softness. Vail’s colorful cousin, Villa, is the same great yarn in bold and beautiful colors.
