Road to China was one of the original Fibre Co. yarns. It began as a blend of baby alpaca, silk, camel, cashmere, soy, and yak fibers and was refined to it's current blend in 2008. It is a 3-ply strong, soft, shiny and drapey yarn with a lot of body perfect for luxurious, soft and warm items. The unique blend of fibers are spun into a smooth yarn and then kettle dyed, and the different way the fibers absorb the dye creates a beautiful depth of color with subtle heathered tones.
