This 4 ply fingering weight Merino Alpaca blend is warm, soft and durable with just enough alpaca to give it that famous glow. Alpaca improves your knitted garments' ability to wick moisture from the skin, thought to be because of the fibre's low moisture retention (as compared to sheep's wool). The addition of nylon increases durability, breathability and aids in resisting abrasion and pilling. A luxurious sock yarn, our Merino Alpaca blend will keep your toes warm and comfortable or give your next shawl an extra touch of fine softness.

I hand dye each colourway in small batches. As with all hand dyed yarns, there may be slight variations between skeins of the same colourway. For this reason, I recommend that you alternate skeins when working on a large project. I take care to accurately photograph all yarn, however, colours may appear slightly differently because displays on computer monitors and mobile devices vary.

I do my best to rinse any excess dye from the yarn, but there may still be a small amount of colour seepage the first time you wash your project. I suggest that you wash newly crafted items separately. I also always recommend hand washing in cold water and drying items flat, as these practices will extend the life of your project.

Yarn is dyed and packaged in a dog-friendly home. While I do take every precaution to ensure that no dog hair comes into contact with the yarn, it is not guaranteed. Buyers with a severe allergy to dogs may want to reconsider their purchase.
