Good Morning! I have narrowed down the yarn that I would like to use for the lace window panel. KnitPicks has Alpaca Cloud - http://www.knitpicks.com/Yarns/itemid_5420108/yarn_display.aspx it is beautiful but none of the colors are quite what I am looking for. Any suggestions for similar yarns? Thanks so much!

Sorry, I'm not that familiar with lace yarns, the only ones I've ever used are KnitPicks lace yarns, their other lace yarns are the only ones I'm familiar with, sorry....what color are you looking for?

Rebecca,
Our living room is forest green and cream. The floor is hickory. I want it to be somewhat eyecatching from the outside as well. Any suggestions are appreciated.

You could do search to find yarns in that weight on these sites and see if that helps. Both of them let you search with various parameters which is nice.

Have you tried Misti Alpaca?

I love this yarn! So soft, non-scratchy, and drapes beautifully.

Susan, Beautiful yarn! :heart: do you order directly from the site or from a local vendor?
