Alpaca and silk lace

A 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 fawn alpaca fleece comes from small British herds (sorry, I muddled the names of the fleeces!!).  The silver grey is the result of blending fleeces of Cortez, Elsa, Roald and Percy.  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 and a detail from a Linhope wrap in the silver grey shade. Patterns are by local designer, Stella Ackroyd

There are approximately 820m per 100g skein.

Handwash carefully at a low temperature.
