Halo Watercolors is a lace weight brushed Suri Alpaca. While it looks like mohair, it has an amazing softness with none of the itchy-ness that you might find in mohair. Suri alpaca is rare, lustrous and perfect for lacy projects. Each 25g ball contains an amazing 257 yards. You can achieve a wide range of gauges on a US #4-8 needle and beyond.
