    Metalico, from Blue Sky Fibers, is a lush single-ply blend of baby alpaca and silk.  This sport-weight yarn feels heavenly next to the skin and provides a lovely drape. It is presented in shiny braids with naturally occurring colors of alpaca plus 6 new dyed colors. Metalico is luxury, as nature intended.  This yarn knits up beautifully in the Lexington Cowl, which is also available in a kit.  But you can create your own unique kit by choosing just the right colors for yourself.  Metalico will create stunning shawls, cowls, ponchos and light weight sweaters.
