The seasons are changing and maybe your needles are yearning for something new? There are many great designs out on newsstands now that may be just the thing. Our Serena yarn is used in all of the following patterns. Serena is a popular choice as a lightweight, whisper-soft yarn for trans-seasonal knitting. It combines two luxury fibers: baby alpaca and pima cotton. The alpaca gives beautiful drape, and the cotton year-round wearability. Together, both fibers produce softly heathered color effects. The supple fabric is perfect for simple shapes as well as the tucks and gathers of so many contemporary designs. Serena comes in twenty-four different semi-solid colorways and eight space-dyed colorways for you to create your unique garment. [gallery link="file"]
