I've been thinking about the yarn to use for my daughter's double-winged stole. She wants black, and doesn't care if there are beads or not, so there will be -- beads are fun! Black beads on black yarn. Yum.
So far I've found Alpaca Fino in Black Pearl, Zephyr in Ebony, Misti Alpaca Lace in Black (descriptive, yes, but just "black"?), and Fearless Fiber Cashmere in Endless Night. Still looking though. I want something that will hold up to her usage, but still be of heirloom quality. A quality yarn. A luxury yarn.
I can't buy this yarn until after Christmas anyway, I just like to be prepared to strike and buy when there's money in the account! LOL
