Our No-Purl Ribbed Scarf has always resonated with us because it combines two of our favorite things: A super-high-quality alpaca yarn and, of course, all knit stitches!

And now with a fresh palette of Alpaca Pure colors to choose from, there is yet another reason the No-Purl Ribbed Scarf is one of our go-to patterns. From the quiet of our Heathered colors to the boldness of our Helixes, Alpaca Pure’s new colors come straight from nature, dipping into its calm and wild complexities.

For this new version, we chose the classic beauty of Lavender Opal. Its pretty purple tones bring the feeling of spring to the middle of January… Another reason to love our No-Purl Ribbed Scarf!
