Baktus: Merino + Angora


The love of the Baktus scarf continues…and now I am experimenting with two kinds of yarns:  angora* and a variegated merino yarn.  I am alternating between them for a stripes effect. 
* [The angora I am using is by Madame Tricote Paris: 40% angora goat hair; 60 % acrylic.  No rabbits were harmed in the process.]
El amor por la bufanda Baktus continúa…y ahora estoy experimentando con la combinación de dos lanas: angora* y merino matizado.
* [Madame Tricote Paris: 40% angora de cabra; 60 % acrílico]

I love this variegated merino** because the color changes are long, and the color effects are wonderful.  This merino yarn has shades in purple, grey, beige, and cream.  And I am combining it with grey angora*.
**[Merino Gold Batik Design, by Madame Tricote Paris].
Me gusta mucho esta lana matizada [Merino Gold Batik, de Madame Tricote Paris], pues los cambios de color son largos, y el efecto que deja es hermoso.  Esta lana tiene tonos morados, grises, beige y crema.  La combiné con una de angora en gris.   

Since I am using angora, I decided to use large knitting needles (8 mm), for a light and airy effect.
Dado que estoy usando lana angora, decidí usar unas agujas de tejer gruesas (8 mm), para un resultado liviano y un poco calado.

And this is the result!
¡Este es el resultado! 

The other Baktus I have made so far  were on the narrow side (check: Color change in the BaktusBaktus loveHybrid scarfMoody GrapeMy First Baktus), but this is wider on the front, for fuller coverage. 
Las otras bufandas Baktus que he tejido hasta ahora son un poco angostas (visiten: Color change in the BaktusBaktus loveHybrid scarfMoody GrapeMy First Baktus ), pero esta es más ancha al frente, para una mayor cobertura. 

I liked it so much that I already started another one, with Country blue angora and Merino in shades of grey and cream…
Me gustó tanto que ya comencé a tejer otra, con una lana angora de color azul campestre, y merino en tonos grises y crema.
