This stunning yarn is a very special blend of linen, baby alpaca and silk which produces a gorgeous lightweight fabric with superb texture and beautiful drape.
This stunning yarn is a very special blend of linen, baby alpaca and silk. The linen content gives it a wonderful texture and subtle tweed-like appearance, the baby alpaca adds softness, and the silk enhances it with a subtle shine. You'll love fabrics made from this yarn, with its subtle colouring and gorgeous drape. Perfect for lightweight shawls, cardigans and sweaters.
To compliment this beautiful yarn, we chose a range of mainly softly muted colourways with some more intense semi-solids. We think you'll agree that they're exquisite!
Deb has been swatching with this yarn and she says, "The first thing anyone talks about when they first pick up this yarn is how soft and silky it feels! It's quite luscious and smooth with a beautiful soft lustre. I've only knitted a small amount so far but it's already very drapey and is lovely to use. I can see it being amazing in less formal garments, and a shawl would be incredible! The linen and silk content means that it doesn't form a tightly structured fabric, so I feel like it will do better on a slightly larger gauge."
