This is the perfect yarn for holding together with another yarn to bulk up the gauge and give the base yarn a whole new look. Pair watercolors with a solid color yarn for extremely subtle shading. It can take a DK weight yarn up to a bulky size needle. While it looks like mohair, Halo has an amazing softness with none of the itchy feel that you might find in mohair. Suri alpaca is very rare and very lustrous and is perfect for lacy projects. Each 25g ball contains an amazing 257 yards of hand-dyed loveliness. You can achieve a wide range of gauges on a US #4-8 needle and beyond.
