Fall/Winter 2020 Alpaca Heather Collection

Four sweaters (and a vest option!) show off the qualities of Alpaca Heather: softness; warmth without bulk; round, 3-ply twist to flatter textured stitches as well as stockinette; beautifully heathered undyed colors; and a coordinated palette of saturated dyed colors that retain the subtlety of the underlying heathered tones.


Janey was envisioned as an enduring wardrobe staple piece, striking the balance between comfort and elegance. Wear it as a Fall or Spring coat or layer it on in Winter when you’re curled up in your knitting chair. This sweater is all about the beauty of simple pattern repetition and minimal shaping which makes for very pleasant knitting.
