New year, new yarn colors!

Peru, one of our absolute favorites in the Valley Yarns line has gotten 5 new additions for 2018! This soft and luxurious chainette constructed blend of baby alpaca, Merino wool, and nylon has quickly become a go-to worsted weight pick for many of us here at WEBS. Whether you knit or crochet, Peru is a warm and squishy option for cold-weather garments and accessories.

Keep reading to learn more about each new colorway and to see our picks for new color combinations!

Fawn is a rich neutral tan. It would pair wonderfully with any color of Peru!

Blue Tourmaline
Blue Tourmaline is a truly unique color – it’s a bright teal with a hint of red blended into the fibers, muting it ever so slightly.

Lichen is a gorgeous heathered sage green colorway. It’s a fantastic color for spring garments!

Berry Compote
A bright, warm purple with a hint of pink, Berry Compote is perfect for a feminine sweater or top.

The darkest color of Peru, Charcoal is a rich, dark gray. Pick this color as a background for brights or neutrals.

What are your favorite color combos? Were there any that we missed? Let us know!

And if you have any Peru in your stash that you’re dying to use in 2018, why don’t you join us on Instagram? In 2018 we’re doing a WEBs Fiber Follow Through where we craft through our New Year’s resolutions!
