Think smooth dark chocolate. This is a butter soft blend of alpaca and British Blue Faced Leicester fleece. The alpaca fleece comes from our own Stella and her sister, Mary, and a handsome black alpaca with the special name of Kamanwati. The alpacas live together in Northumberland. The yarn has been processed and spun at The Border Mill in the Scottish Borders. We achieved a gauge of 20 stitches and 28 rows in a 10cm square with 3.25 needles. Approximately 195m per 100g skein.
Our first project is Carbeth by Kate Davies. We achieved the required gauge holding the yarn double with size 6 needles.
