Introducting... Prism Andee!

Everyone say hello, Andee... "hello Andee!"

Prism Andee is a new-to-us yarn that we're happy to introduce (here are our introductory colors). Andee is a 50% Wool/50% Alpaca that has a put-up of 114 yards (2 ounces) and the suggested gauge is 4 1/2 sts/inch on a US #7. It retails for $15/skein. It is available in all of Prism's hand-dyed colors, as well as the sandwashed solids (pictured above) so please let us know if there is a colorway that you're in love with.

From the Prism website:
Andee is a lovely, classic plied twist of intimately blended alpaca and wool. The wool provides memory and bounce, and the alpaca lends a beautiful sheen. The knitted fabric combines the best of both worlds: a firm hand that shows color work and stitch definition well, but has a silky softness from the alpaca.

We haven't had time to work any of it up yet, but that's mostly because all we want to do is curl up with it and have a nice snuggle on the couch, it is just that soft!
