Cozy Alpaca Throw
A cozy twill throw blanket woven from soft alpaca yarn. Order a kit.
I have been weaving this up in 3 narrower panels on my 22" 4-shaft loom. I appreciated the guidance on what to watch out for if weaving in panels and have color blocked the pattern accordingly. I used cream, whole wheat, and a dusty pink which is no longer available. The pattern was easy to follow and the yarn is lovely - warm and light.
I liked this pattern and it was easy to follow I changed the width to 34 inches and used cotton warp and the Gist alpaca yarn for the weft. I was pleased with the result.
During this time of pandemic it's nice to know I can get my weaving supplies in the USA. The patterns are easy to read and they offer weave alongs which is pretty cool. We need to support our small local/USA owned businesses they depend on us. I'm a new Weaver and I'll definitely be ordering from here again
I am working with recovering wounded Veterans via Semper Fi Fund. Alpaca (in abundance) has been gifted them. How wonderful it was to be able to download this beautiful Alpaca Throw Blanket pattern and share it with those I’m helping to learn to weave. You are such a blessing! Thank you for “giving”...always...Charlotte
As a brand new weaver, I found the pattern easy to understand and follow. I managed a lovely wool shawl on a 36” floor loom. It worked up pretty quickly - with just a few errors where I got distracted and lost track of my treading. Will definitely use this pattern again. Thank you Gist!
