Road to China Light is inspired by the luxury textiles that were traded along the ancient Silk Road. This sport-weight yarn blends natural fawn baby alpaca, camel hair, cashmere, and silk to create a fabric with a soft halo and enough definition to explore subtle textures. With a colour palette inspired by polished precious stones, Road to China Light is a yarn for creating something truly special.

This yarn is incredibly soft and light. It lacks the heft of 100% wool sport weights and is light and airy. I love using it as a double layered brim on my knit hats for a soft, warm, light layer over my ears, paired with a heavier merino weight on the body of the hat. It could be the perfect yarn for the right projects (babies and next to skin), but is not the perfect yarn for every project (lacks the durability for abuse).
My favorite yarn to work with. Am wanting to make all my projects from it. I like to double strand it with wool/yak to make a dk for sweaters.
Its a dream to knit. For cables there’s some stitch definition. It has a subtle bloom. Not too fuzzy. Then there are the colors. Amatrine and moonstone stand out with their multi facets. Moonstone has Grey’s, brown and when knit gives of a silvery whitish sheen. Just stunning.

Beautiful feel, amazing warmth, and the fiber holds the color amazingly. This is an exquisite fiber to work with, just a pleasure to knit. I made a loop scarf, and I adore it. I love the person who suggested doubling it into the edge of a cap for warmth. Quite frankly, I just love holding it, and looking at it. It is my favorite yarn.
