Meet Bernice, our new and ultra soft Suri Alpaca/Silk blend base, named after a dear alpaca close to Queen City Yarn’s heart. Bernice works great as the main yarn for those soft and flowing lace patterns, and is also great held together with other yarns to give your project that lovely halo effect. We find that this perfect blend sheds less than mohair, making it a great alternative if you’re worried about shedding or itchiness. You’ll find that the coloring is saturated at its core, whilst fading to a gentler shade at its soft edges.
