It doesn’t get more snuggly than this undyed 70% alpaca/30% wool chunky yarn! Lightweight, warm and cosy this gorgeous yarn makes is a natural alternative to synthetic ‘fleece’ fibres.. This undyed yarn is beautiful in its natural colour but it looks equally beautiful dyed with our acid, procion mx (fibre reactive), natural or indigo dyes. It has a soft halo which makes it ideally suited to soft, muted colours.
Uses: This yarn is ideal for bold, textured garments, accessories and (of course) teddy bears!
Metreage (Yardage): Approx. 80m (87yds)
Suggested needle sizes: 6mm-10mm (US 10-15, old UK 4-0)
Care instructions: We recommend handwashing this yarn. Do not tumble dry.
‘If you are hand-dyeing this yarn and are looking for a deeper shade, make sure you ‘cook’ it to a high temperature as the colour intensifies with the heat. It is surprisingly tolerant of heat, just be careful not to overhandle while it’s hot and allow it to cool completely before rinsing in warm water’.
For a nice gift you could pair this yarn with one of our easy-to-use starter kits which contain all you need to start your first hand-dyeing project!
