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.
I got this as part of the Juxtaposition Scarf kit, and it is lovely.
Wonderful texture and easy to weave with. Love Gist products! Perfection in quality and color assortment.
I wove a scarf using another company's "Alpaca" because the color was just what I wanted. The result was "meh." I' m now starting a scarf using the same pattern, with Ode Blossom and I can't believe the difference between Ode and the other Alpaca! Ode is such a pleasure to weave! Gorgeous and so soft! I'll re-make the previous scarf using Daylight, which I hope is a light blue. Ordering now! Can't send pics until I finish the new scarves.
I recently completed the “cozy alpaca poncho”, pattern by Andrea Carpenter for Gist. The yarn was silky, soft, and lovely to work with. I did find tensioning much improved by lashing on rather than tying on. I honestly expect to make at least a couple more ponchos in different colors. Just gorgeous! I expect to use this yarn frequently.
I love Ode to Alpaca. Delightful yarn to work with, beautiful color with a combo of Rhubarb, Fawn, and Cream. Warping now for a spectacular scarf!
