Alpaca and silk lace


We are proud to introduce our first lace weight yarn.  It is a very special blend of finest British alpaca fleece and silk.  You will see a photo of Conran’s beautiful fleece and some traditional Shetland lace samples we have knitted (thanks to my friend Moira for lending her copy of Heirloom Knitting by Sharon Miller).  The samples were knitted on size 3mm needles.

The stunning shawl is a Juliet shawl by Stella Ackroyd created with one skein of our fawn colourway – we think it’s gorgeous!

Please specify which colourway you would like – cream or fawn – when ordering

A very limited edition of a very special lace weight yarn.  We have created a fine lace yarn blending 70% Alpaca with 30% natural silk.   The finest alpaca fleece comes from small British herds, and includes the fleece from Spirit, Bonnie, Connel and Sasha from Netherfield Alpacas, Conran from Westyett Alpacas, and Slug (handsome boy, really) and Maggie who enjoy life at Barnacre Alpacas.  The yarns have been spun at the small Two Rivers Mill in Dorset which excels at producing very fine lace weight yarns.

We have shown a stunning Juliet shawl knitted in one skein of the fawn colourway.

There are approximately 825m per 100g skein.

Handwash carefully at a low temperature.
