The super soft light Aran/worsted yarn is a blend of 70% alpaca fleece and 30% Blue Faced Leicester sheep fleece. The alpaca fleeces all come from small British herds.
The warm slate shade has been created by blending alpaca fleece from dark brown Henry from a small organic farm in Aberdeenshire and graphite grey Cortez from Higham Alpacas in Fife (pictured). This is the heaviest blend and is approximately 160m per 100g skein.
The classic cream combines fleece from Heatherbell Alpacas in Northumberland and fleece from Columbus, a fine white boy from Fife. There are approximately 180m per skein.
The pebble shade has been created by blending alpaca fleece from Cuillin and Curly from Aberdeenshire, and Marvel from Fife. There are approximately 180m per 100g skein.
The chocolate (my favourite) combines the fleece from our girls Stella and Mary and a handsome boy alpaca called Kamanwati. There are approximately 195mm per 100g
We would recommend 3.75mm needles to show off cables and twists. The yarns are ideal for jumpers and are soft enough to be next to skin for accessories.
If you only need a little for details or trims, try the mini skeins which combines 50g of the cream with two other shades – just let us know which ones you would like!
