Kelbourne Woolens Andorra is a classic, strong, versatile 2-plied sport weight merino wool, highland wool, and mohair blend yarn. Designed with a vintage feel in a gorgeous colour palette, Andorra is perfect for knitted or crocheted garments and accessories alike.
Peruvian Highland wool is a Merino x Corriedale cross, which produces a soft fibre with a lot of crimp, and a dry hand. The Highland sheep is bred to be large and sturdy, and is able to live at high altitudes. The fleece has a micron count of between 24.5mic to 28.5 microns, so it's coarser than the merino but provides greater strength and, more importantly, durability.
