Mariquita is a luxurious blend of 50% baby alpaca and 50% tencel, a fingering weight yarn that works well for both garments and lace work. It has a subtle shine and a beautiful drape. Perfect for shawls, scarves, and lightweight garments and accessories. Each 100 gm skein is approximately 400 yards. When knitting a garment a US3 (3.25mm) needle is recommended, but when working lace a needle up to a US6 (4mm) is fine.
