The Road to China blend is inspired by the luxury textiles that were traded along the ancient Silk Road that runs across China from East to West. The base is a blend of a natural fawn baby alpaca, camel hair, cashmere, and silk. Road to China Light is a sport weight yarn that creates a knitted fabric with a soft halo and enough definition to explore subtle textures and shifting patterns. The colour palette is inspired by polished precious stones, with the silk allowing for brilliant and translucent shades alike. Road to China Light is the hank to reach for to create something truly special.
