Alpaca and Blue Faced Leicester 4ply

£20.00

We are proud to introduce this worsted spun unique blend of fleece from local alpacas and fine Blue Faced Leicester sheep fleece.  The yarn has produced a beautiful result with simple stocking stitch and lace detail.  This is a refined yarn with a slight marl resulting from blending fleeces from both grey and white alpacas.  We have added a photograph of Cortez who has provided the grey in the mix.

Sometimes it’s good to keep it simple – here is a simply stunning blend of alpaca and Blue Faced Leicester which has been worsted spun in a small mill in Dorset to create a butter soft, versatile 4ply.  The colour in this yearn comes from blending dark grey and white alpaca fleece and white Blue Faced Leicester fleece.  The fleece comes from a grey boy called Cortez from Fife, a white boy Charlie from Lanarkshire, and, white girls Pearl and Jasmine who are also from Lanarkshire
