About this yarn:
A medium weight lace yarn with 800m to the skein, this fine yarn is beautifully soft and drapy with a silky sheen, soft handle and a very slight halo.
This yarn is perfect for shawls and delicate wraps. It will also make gorgeous drapy tops and light sweaters.

We suggest needle sizes:
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.
‘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’.
