This luxury blend of alpaca, silk and linen is a treat for any yarn lover. With the softness of alpaca, combined with the strength of the silk and the gorgeous drapey qualities of the linen, this is a beautiful blend perfect for that special project where you want something truly luxury.
Handdyed in a bright aqua semi solid, this colour looks striking on its own or coordinates with the other colours in this limited edition series.
Hand wash in cool water. Dry flat. Linen will soften on blocking.
100g/400m. Sock weight
50% alpaca 25% silk 25% linen
All the yarns are hand dyed by me, in my small home studio in Devon. I use professional dyes that are non toxic, and colourfast. The yarn is painted or kettle dyed by hand, then steam set until the dye has fully exhaust, washed and carefully rinsed before being hung outside to dry in the sea breeze ( when the weather allows – for really rainy days we have an indoor drying area too!). We take steps to reduce our environmental impact, and you’ll find an eclectic mix of new, repurposed and upcycled equipment in the studio, which is partially solar powered. I take all photos using natural daylight, and although I do my best to show them in their true colour, monitors can vary.
You can get ideas of what to use this yarn for by following me on Pinterest. I also post behind the scenes pictures and new stock on my Instagram page, and you can often find me chatting about yarn and what I am making over on my blog.
