On this episode's yarn spotlight Eunny Jang and Clara Parkes go into the Knitting Lab to discuss camelid blends. What is a camelid yarn and what are the best uses for these fibers? Featured on this episode is Kelbourne Woolen's Road to China yarn. This 3-ply strong, soft, shiny, and drapey yarn has a lot of body. It lends itself well to comfy, cozy projects. Also seen on this yarn spotlight is Grignasco's Tikal baby alpaca yarn (pink).
