We know that whilst you love enduring classics, you love newness also, which is why we like to keep things fresh and moving along! So, each new season we are delighted to introduce new styles and new yarns.
Our yarn newbie this autumn is Alpaca. A close relative of the Llama, Alpacas are bred mainly for their soft and luxurious fibers, which are warm, soft and lanolin-free, making them hypoallergenic.

Known to be difficult to work with (due to their delicate, fine nature), Alpaca fibers require skilled craftspeople when it comes to processing. They can’t be bleached very easily, so dying Alpaca and Alpaca-blend fabrics is a labor of love!
A lustrous-looking and feeling fiber, which is rare and delicate, Alpaca is a luxurious yarn. Boasting wonderful, silk-like, tactile qualities, Alpaca is often added to other yarns to produce a soft and sensual end-fabric. This season, we’ve added Alpaca to our Pure Wool to produce a blended yarn which is warm and reliable, yet luxurious and tactile.
We’re delighted to have Alpaca in our all-natural yarn family, and we think it’s going to delight you too!
