|The new very limited edition range of Skeinz Alpaca Pure|
|My favourite from the new collection - it's just such an optimistic shade!|
Especially to celebrate Knit August Nights & our sponsoring of the Alpaca hand crafts section of the Hawkes Bay A & P Show, we have produced a very small limited edition range of pure Alpaca yarns. Pure Alpaca has a lightness, softness and warmth that is quite unique. It doesn't have the energy & fibre memory as wool, but what it does have is a floaty drape that lends itself to light dreamy garments, wraps, shawls or feminine cardigans. Because of it's smoothness and softness it is also a great option for children you need something very gentle next to their skins.
|A bouquet of loveliness - Heritage Alpaca Merino|
The other thing I love about Alpaca is how nicely it plays with other fibres. if you blend it back with wool you have a yarn that takes on the best from both fibres: Softness, drape with structure & style. In our Heritage range we have introduced a new 50/50 blend of Alpaca with Organic Merino to produce a seriously squishy, lovable yarn. Available currently in 4 shades from the Vintage palette: Merlot, Charcoal, Rosehip & Alpine with Pewter still to come, it's a range that begs to have colours mixed and mingled, blended, just as we have blended the two fibres together.
