Luxurious Waratah 4ply 100% alpaca yarn from Blackwattle Yarn (previously known as One Tree Hill Alpacas) is grown and processed in NSW. This delicious yarn is buttery soft and produces an incredibly warm and drapey fabric. Owners Matthew and Angela (Angela also dyes the yarn) have created an extraordinary range of yarns that are quickly earning a reputation among lovers of indie-dyed yarn.
We were delighted to welcome One Tree Hill as our Sister's Spotlight in July 2017 and we loved the yarn so much that we've been working with Angela to develop this new colour range, exclusive to Skein Sisters, of her Waratah 4ply.
Ambah O'Brien has designed a fabulous shawl in four of our exclusive Blackwattle Yarn colours for our first anniversary in April 2018, which she will launch at her Trunk Show on Friday 6 April and present in a workshop on Sunday 8 April. The workshop includes the kit for the shawl (4 x 100g skeins of Blackwattle Yarn Waratah 4ply + the Correa Wrap pattern). You will be able to choose Ambah's colour selection, or put together your own colour selection for the workshop.
Colours for Ambah's Correa Wrap are: Acropora, Acropora Pink, Sugar Cane and Dark Denim. Kits for the Correa Wrap will be available in store at Ambah's Trunk Show on Friday 6 April. You can pre-order the kit online and in-store from Easter.
