Cirro is a sport weight yarn combining long lustrous Suri alpaca with Merino wool, and then wrapping this fluffy fiber around an organic cotton thread to make a light and airy yarn with fantastic yardage and that is perfectly balanced for body and drape. Some colors are built around a white cotton core and some are built around a black cotton core. The results can be quite dramatic.
Cirro creates a delightfully soft haloed fabric that is light as a feather and easily worn next to the skin. Knit it tighter as a sport weight or looser for a more gauzy fabric with great flow and drape. Or consider carrying Cirro with another yarn.
This yarn is perfect for lightweight sweaters and shawls. It would make a perfect layering piece for transitional weather.
