Tierno - Alpaca and Silk Luxury Yarn

Tierno is a new yarn for us!  Actually we added this yarn earlier this fall and have only had it available at shows.  Tierno is 70% Baby Alpaca and 30% Cultivated Silk.  Each skein has 310 yards and knits at a DK gauge. It is sweetly soft and ideal for those who have wool allergies.

We now have it listed on the website and will be adding more colors and colorways over the next few months.  I knitted a scarf with Tierno using Anne Hanson's Rivolo. It was a pleasant knit, with a lovely feel as it flowed through my fingers.  Alpaca takes the colors in a more muted way, so these yarns have a luscious color softness as well as being soft to the touch.

We will be giving away a skein of Tierno to a randomly picked person who comments on the blog between now and 12 noon EST on Wednesday, December 15 . 

NOTE:  Your comment should include which color of Tierno you like the best and indicate what you would like to make with it.

And just so you can see what is happening in the mountains of East Tennessee. They have predicted a total of 8 plus inches of snow!

So many lovely yarns to choose from—tough decision. I am in need of some winter gear that actually matches each other :) (hat, scarf, gloves). For that, I’d choose something colorful to brighten up a winter day. ‘Van Gogh’ would do the trick.

I think I would like Field Mouse and would probably make Rivolo. It looks sooo beautiful!


I think the Timberline Shadows is the prettiest and would love to win.
