Ode is a 4/9 100% baby alpaca yarn, grown and spun in Peru and dyed in subtle, melange shades that bring depth to your weaving.
Hand wash cool with a gentle soap, and lay flat to dry.
This yarn was a joy to work with! Soft yet strong on the loom. Minimal shrinkage in length and width (~ 5% each direction). The final project has a beautiful drape and light sheen. Patterns used are from Strickler’s “ A Weaver’s Book of 8- Shaft Patterns”; Brighton Honeycomb (p 14, # 21) and “Breaks and recesses” (p 17, # 47). Still working on what to do with those fringes! Christine’s warm demeanor and helpful tips are so very appreciated!
I ordered this yarn for a scarf project. I know that alpaca is usually soft but this yarn feels incredible, It is going to be incredible to weave with and to wear. The color is beautiful as well.
Saw a scarf made out of this yarn, it was beautiful
I have ordered many cones of Ode - it's wonderful to weave with and the drape is excellent. One of the scarves I've woven with Ode has become my favorite. The colors are a treat!
This is such a great fiber to work with! I made some pillows using it and love the way they turned out! Would definitely recommend the alpaca!
