Mariquita is a luxurious blend of alpaca and tencel fingering weight yarn that works well for both garments and lace work. A smaller knitting needle or hook (US 3 / D) is recommended for knitting and crocheting a garment, but when working a lace pattern, a larger needle or hook can be used.  The 3-ply yarn fiber yields a beautiful drape with the tencel bringing an extra bit of shine to any project.  Mariquita is perfect for summer garments, shawls, scarves, and accessories alike!

With all of the color variations available, you could create a floral fade in Peach Blossoms, Hibiscus, and Fairy Godmother.  Or for a moody montage, try Carnvial, Crocus, and Nebula.
