Cupric comes from the Latin word for copper. Cupric is the name of my latest design, published in Issue 24 of Yarn magazine.
The yarn is Qoperfina supplied by Ecoyarns. It is an amazing blend of organic baby alpaca, organic pima cotton & pure copper fibre. The copper fibre is not obvious in the yarn, and the yarn is soft and has a wonderful drape.
Because of the lovely drape and the shape, Cupric can be worn in numerous ways on the body.
Copper has long been regarded as having many health benefits, particularly when worn against the skin. Cupric is a lightweight wrap, perfect for when a ‘little something’ is needed about the back & shoulders; or draped around the neck as a scarf.
