Materials Used


Breakfast Blend is a delicious, 3-ply pairing of soft, combed merino and alpaca yarn, which knits up into a luxurious, velvety fabric. The alpaca contributes a silky hand while the merino keeps the yarn bouncy and light; the resulting fabric has a warm density and soft halo without weight, perfect for garments, accessories, or blankets.
