The classic cream Aran is a blend of 70% bright, white fleece from Heatherbell Alpacas in Northumberland and fleece from Columbus, a fine white boy from Higham Alpacas in Fife, and 30% Blue Faced Leicester sheep fleece.
Approximately 180m per 100g skein.
We used size 4mm needles for the swatch and achieved 22 stitches and 26 rows. We would recommend 3.5mm needles to show off cables and twists. It would be ideal for jumpers and is soft enough to be next to skin for accessories.
If you would like to add some detail or trim with the pebble and the slate shades, try a mini-skein
Hope you love it – it’s a very special yarn
