Berroco Yarns Folio is available in many soft colour ways.
This season we have so many new yarns that we want to share with you. One of our new favourites is Berroco Folio. Our first shipment sold out quickly but we are re-stocking as quickly as we can.
Folio is a lovely blend of 65% alpaca and 35% rayon viscose. This combination gives a soft halo to the yarn, a incredible softness with just the right amount of drape.
You can use this yarn for any garment that knits to a gauge of 22 sts per 10 cm or 4″ or for a accessory that will handle a larger gauge such as a shawl or scarf.
We would recommend that this yarn be used for designs that are unstructured and are of simple construction. The fabric created with this yarn doesn’t have the “bite” of wool but rather melts in your hands.
Watch this little video to view the designs that Berroco has created for this yarn.
We have itemized the names of these patterns for closer inspection below.
