Melanie Berg x Pascuali

Balayage, a new yarn collab between Melanie Berg and Pascuali Filati Naturali, made its debut at Vogue Knitting Live over the weekend. The thoughtfully created fingering weight yarn – a blend of 80% baby alpaca and 20% virgin wool – comes in curated color groups that effortlessly work together, but can be easily combined with colors from other groups. The lightweight and soft yarn can be found in LYS around the country and online.
