Introducing Bohemia Gothic - exactly the same as Bohemia Worsted, except for it’s black alpaca heart.
Welcome to the dark side...
Deliciously soft and silky, Bohemia is the perfect blend of luxury fibres. Combining the extreme softness and warmth of possum and alpaca with the extra long staple and lustre of polwarth, Bohemia ticks every box. The polwarth provides excellent stitch definition, stitch memory and sheen, the alpaca gives a silky drape and the possum content is perfectly balanced to bring a subtle marl and soft halo to the knitted yarn. Possum has similar qualities to mink. The fibres are hollow, light, non-itchy, extremely warm and (unlike angora) possum is pill resistant. Alpaca is an extraordinarily fine fibre with microscopic air pockets creating unique thermal properties. It's durable, non-flammable and non-itchy cntaining no lanolin with a smooth cell structure.
Bohemia Gothic is a variation of Bohemia Worsted, still the same construction and fibre content except the 45% alpaca is black, not white, which means the base colour is a gorgeous dark grey. Divine.
