Cascade Woolpaka Shire 11

Shire is a very popular shade throughout the Cascade Yarn company lines.  It is a very heathery dark green, with quite a bit of heathery yellow.

Woolpaka consists of a blend of 60% wool and 40% alpaca. The wool provides durability, elasticity, and warmth, while the alpaca adds softness, a silky texture, and additional warmth. Woolpaka is very soft to the touch, thanks to the alpaca content. It has a slightly fuzzy halo, which is characteristic of alpaca fibers, giving finished projects a cozy, luxurious feel. Cascade Yarns offers Woolpaka in a wide range of colors, from vibrant, bold hues to soft, muted tones. The blend of fibers takes dye well, resulting in rich, even heathery colors.

This yarn is suitable for a variety of projects, including garments like sweaters, shawls, hats, and mittens, as well as home decor items such as blankets and pillows. Its warmth and softness make it especially good for items intended to be worn close to the skin.
