Ready, Set, Knit! episode 404 - Kathy talks with Andra Asars - listen now at

Northstar is a chunky, superfine alpaca with a touch of nylon, in all natural colors. Gusto is a thick-n-thin wool acrylic blend great for quick garter or stockinette accessories while Briza is a worsted weight nylon netting filled with blown in mohair for easy, lightweight cardigans and accessories

Artisan fills the need for a hand dyed look with great, repeatable kettle dyed colors, and don’t forget to check out Colora and Folio Luxe. Also be on the look out for Berroco’s extensive pattern support which will be arriving in the coming weeks, including Portfolio Vol. One – Celebrating 10 years of Ultra Alpaca!
