Auteretar is a new yarn for Summer 2017, spun of incredibly soft and airy brushed baby alpaca around a silk core thread. 580 m (640 yds) of loft yarn will go a long way: one skein will be enough for a small adult-sized pullover when knit to 4 to 5 stitches per inch. This yarn will yield airy, soft and warm garments when used on its own or doubled. Knit it together with a sturdy yarn for a touch of halo in the finished garment.
Auteretar is available in 25 g (.9 oz) skeins and, for a introductory period, in 100 g skeins. Both skeins are photographed in case two sizes are available in the colorway.
Handwash is recommended for Auteretar.

Viimatar comes from Nepal and the neutral beige of the base fiber gives a warm touch to all of the colorways.
