Cozy Alpaca Poncho Kit ~ Moonstone
$ 78.00 USD
This Simple Alpaca Poncho by Andrea Carpenter is woven with three cones of our 3/10 Alpaca Weaving Yarn on a 2-4 shaft floor loom or rigid heddle loom and constructed with three straight seams. Or, if you prefer not to sew you can simply weave two lovely alpaca scarves instead.
This kit contains 3 x 1/2 lb cones of 3/10 Alpaca Weaving Yarn in Cloud & Peacock, and a digital PDF download of the pattern.
This worked up quickly and could be made a bit longer as I had about a yard of unused warp on the loom when I finished. Because it is going to a tiny woman I didn't want a long poncho. I would consider doing this at 10 epi for even a softer drape. I beat gently on an open shed and then changed sheds before throwing the shuttle again. Doing this kept my beat very even.
I haven't made the poncho yet. But I like the colors that arrived and the whole order process was very easy. The draft looks straight forward as well.
Love the pattern and ready to start. Yarn was so great in ordered more in other colors for my stash. Made an error on the order and emailed Sarah who corrected weight of yarn before it shipped. Love little shops.
