Care instructions:

We wash our yarns by hand in warm water with gentle, woolsafe pH neutral wash liquid. Rinse carefully in warm water then squeeze excess water out by hand. Do not wring. Roll in a clean, lint-free towel if required to remove excess moisture and leave to dry out of direct sunlight in a warm place. Do not dry over a radiator or with direct heat.

Debbie says:

‘Naturally coloured yarns give particularly interesting effects when dyed and they are some of my favourite yarns to work with.

Alpaca is super-warm and drapy and can often be worn by those with sensitivity to wool’.
