When they discovered that the original yarn for the Plum Perfect sweater in the bestselling book was no longer available ,they took up the challenge to create a replacement.

They worked with author Sandra McIver and the wonderful yarn people at Mountain Colors and came up with a gorgeous solution. Plum Perfect knit in Mountain Colors Alpaca Blend (Alpaca and Wool) and Twizzle yarns:

Plum Perfect!

They also have a luxury version  in Mountain Colors Mountain Goat and Jeannette (cashmere/silk blend ) yarns . Yum. Both kits are available exclusively at Fiber Wild.

Plum Perfect colorways. Some plum, some not so plum.
