Here's the description of the yarn from their 'Bluesletter':

Introducing our latest yarn: Techno. A modern take on 1970’s neon and natural. The line includes seven groovy pop colors, perfectly balanced with six granola lover neutrals. Modern technology makes Techno a feather weight genius. Baby alpaca is blown into a mesh tube of silk, there is literally no splitting, for really fast knitting. You just won’t believe it.

I've been working on a design in Techno, and it's true, this yarn is amazing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Techno is so lightweight, at the same time knitting up at a gauge of 3.5 stitches and 5 rows per inch on a US 10.5 needle.  It feels so soft AND as a bonus it smells really good, like good fiber should!

Here are all the colors Techno will be available in:
