View Full Version : Using Knitpicks Suri Dream for a shawl?

I'm considering using Knitpicks Suri Dream for a shawl...

If I paired it with this (http://www.plymouthyarn.com/index.php?nav=cYarn.yarnDetail&yarnid=000131&searchcollection=000012) yarn, what kind of a fabric would I end up with?

I'm not sure if it would be better to use the Suri Dream on its own, or combine it with something like that Plymouth yarn and then the project would go really fast and be extremely warm and fuzzy.

How yummy!!!! :inlove: I'd never stop touching a shawl made with alpaca and MORE alpaca!!! :rofl: Seriously, I wondered this question too--how does Suri Dream do "on its own"? Does it need to be paired with something? Sorry I can't offer any advice, but I wanted to comment on what a neat pairing of yarns it would be. I'm going to eventually make the Suri Throw at Knit Picks and was wondering if I'd like the laciness of it as the pattern suggests, or if I should pair it with another yarn to give it some body; I'm not sure yet. Hopefully somebody here will be able to give you some great advice!
