This hand dyed, pure baby alpaca yarn is incredibly soft and squishy!  Plus, don’t miss this exclusive coupon code, just for my readers.

KnitCrate is a monthly yarn subscription service, delivering high-quality, hand-dyed yarn to your doorstep.  They offer several different crates, with different types of yarn and projects. The crate shown in the video above is the KnitCrate Membership, which includes 2 skeins of premium yarn in the featured colorway, and 2 exclusive patterns (1 knitting pattern, 1 crochet pattern). All KnitCrates ship worldwide with free shipping and handling. Members also receive reward points and discounts towards future purchases.

Use Coupon Code “YAYFORYARN20” for 20% off your first KnitCrate.

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme is “Wanderings”.  The colorways for this month are inspired by nature.  There are three different colorways available for March: “Chestnut”, “Ancient Pines”, or “Dogwood Berry”, which I received. 

It’s almost a solid cranberry red, but some of the fibers have hints of yellow and brown.  I think this gives the yarn a bit of a rustic look.

The yarn is La Brebis Light Alpaca, a pure, fingering-weight baby alpaca yarn.  I’ve used other yarns in previous KnitCrates that were blends of baby alpaca with something else, but I’ve never tried a pure baby alpaca yarn before.  This yarn is super soft!  When you pick it up, it has a cool, silky feeling at first, and it is sooooo squishy!

Extras

All KnitCrate subscriptions normally include an extra item, but this month, there are two!  I received two pairs of point protectors for knitting needles, and a handful of locking plastic stitch markers.

The crate includes a small pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate.  This booklet contains 1 crochet pattern (Seashell Capelet) and 1 knitting pattern (Decumani Hat & Cowl) for the Membership crate.  For the Sock crate, there’s a sock knitting pattern (Hearleaf Socks) and a crochet sock pattern (Rhythmic Ramblings Socks).

I’m not sure what I’ll make with these yarns yet, but I can’t wait to see how these colorways look together in a project!

Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
