Colca Baby Llama & Silk

Colca is a delightful blend of raw materials from the new world and the orient. The blend of 56% Baby Llama and 44% silk produces a heavenly soft yarn with pure colors and sheen that comes only from silk.

The silk is mulberry silk, from cultivated Bombyx silkworms, which is more uniform than wild silk. and very fine. This yarn has a very even 4ply spin, yielding a light Worsted or DK weight yarn

This yarn is a marvelous choice for a larger garment or lace project. A size US seven needle will produce a solid stockinette fabric that can be luxuriously worn next to the skin. About 5 stitches to the inch.

  • 50 gr balls
  • about 109 yards per ball
  • About 5 st to the inch on US 7 (4.5 mm) needles

    This is my first experience with this yarn. I'm finding I have to work carefully so I do not split the yarn while knitting. I love the color.
