Inca Alpaca
Inca Alpaca
Inca Alpaca is soft, sturdy and very warm--even when wet. Alpaca is a smoother fiber than wool, giving it a luster that many wools lack. It’s also a dry fiber; there’s no lanolin to worry about if you’re one of the folks who reacts to lanolin in wool.

The great color range in Inca Alpaca make it great not only for fair isle, but also for finding that one perfect color for solid garments and accessories.

1513 Artistic Differences 1513 Artistic Differences
Talitha's musical and performing background inspired her to create Artistic Differences. She imagined one design altered to be knit and styled two ways – a bohemian acoustic style and an edgier rock'n'roll look. Each of the 10 projects are shown twice, giving the knitter ideas for customizing to their own particular style.

Virginia Lee Burton Demetrios is beloved for her brilliant books for children, but she was also the organizing force behind The Folly Cove Designers, a group of mostly women who collaborated to hand print textiles in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
