We fell in love with the color palette of Plymouth Yarn's Incan Spice first, then fell in love all over again once we fondled a skein. The luxurious merino blend gets its wonderful halo from the yak fiber and lends itself nicely to colorwork as well as supersoft hats and scarves.
We love Vanessa Ewing's Fairisle Hat F794 with 4 skeins of Natural, 2 skeins of Navy and 1 skein of Orange. You'll need sizes 2, 3, and 4 16-inch circulars and dpns. The pattern is available for purchase on ravelry.com.
Or how about Vanessa Ewing's Simple Lace Cowl F802 knit with one skein of Natural Incan Spice on size 6 needles?!? It knits up quickly into a soft, scrumptious scarf or can be joined into a loop. and the pattern is free on ravelry.com.
