Sumptuosity is a 3 ply 70% Baby Alpaca, 20% Silk and 10% Cashmere. By definition Sumptuosity means luxury, expensiveness, sumptuousness and lavish. As the name implies this is my most luxurious yarn to date. It comes in fingering and sport weight. Truly a delight to knit with and of course to wear! Pamper your feet with a pair of socks or wrap it around you close to your skin; it's so soft and warm for the coldest of days. Baby alpaca and silk make it very durable and strong and the cashmere makes it even softer and more sumptuous than ever and the silk also gives it a bit of shine.

Test Knitters Thoughts:
I really like working with this yarn. It is soft and not splitty. It works up to a very nice, drapy fabric that feels very luxurious. My gauge is 6spi on size 3 needles. I could easily go down to a 2, or even a 1 if making socks. All in all I would give this yarn 5 stars. A delight.
