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 worked with Angela to launch a new 2018 colour range, exclusive to Skein Sisters, of her Waratah 4ply.
Now in June 2019 we're thrilled to announce the new 2019 Colour Collection, which has a few favourites from the 2018 Collection (including Ambah's Correa Wrap Colours) plus a collection of exciting brand new colours exclusive to Skein Sisters, including a selection of one of a kind colours (OOAK).
Ambah O'Brien designed a fabulous shawl in four of our exclusive Blackwattle Yarn colours for our first anniversary in April 2018, which she launched at Skein Sisters. Colours for Ambah's sample Correa Wrap are: Acropora, Acropora Pink, Sugar Cane and Dark Denim and kits are available in store and online. The kits include 4 x 100g skeins of Blackwattle Yarn Waratah 4ply in Ambah's colours + a printed copy of the Correa Wrap pattern. Choose a kit containing Ambah's colour selection...or you can create your own unique colour combination by choosing 4 individual skeins.
