Punchy colours make this yarn a standout, but the fun doesn't stop there. Perennial is just as divinely soft as the colours are vibrant.
Superwash merino, suri alpaca, and nylon combine forces to form a triple threat yarn full of versatility. Most yarn enthusiasts will be familiar with merino and the silky softness it brings to any project, but alpaca can be counted on for comfortable coziness too. Suri is a variety of alpaca with long, lustrous locks. These long fibres add a subtle hairiness, extra warmth, and lackadaisical drape to the yarn. The nylon intensifies the structure so that garments made with Perennial will have some stretch resistance and will be more long lasting. All of this means that if you choose you could use your Perennial yarn to make heavenly, alpaca-merino socks! We also see it as a winner for fine sweaters, baby gear, and shawls and scarves too.
Each skein of fine fingering weight yarn comes with a healthy amount of yardage and will take you far into a project before you need to reach for another. Try doubling up Perennial and still get a good amount of yarn for a project that calls for a DK weight yarn.
