Alpaca merino yarn:
This yarn is an unusual blend of alpaca and Australian superfine merino. We call this yarn red-marble and have not blended both fibres as such but created a deliberate and unusual visual texture.
We select both fibres carefully to provide this yarn with a super-soft luxurious feel.
The merino is from Ambleside Merino. It is gorgeously soft with amazing comfort and elasticity. The entire journey of this yarn is only 225 kms from farm to yarn. It is a superfine, not super-washed, yarn – therefore, as environmentally friendly as a yarn can be.
We carefully select all of our alpaca from specific breeders and all fibre is from within Victoria.
The wool has been scoured to remove the lanolin, but it is not carbonised. It means that it is better for for you and the environment. We wash all of the alpaca fibre with rain water and a low phosphate detergent, therefore you may still find some grass seeds in the yarn.
We have designed this yarn by bringing both fibres together during the process to create this lovely alpaca merino yarn in a number of different weights.
All of our yarns are semi-worsted.
Our solar system supplies most of the electricity for our processing.
We want to take care of our property, our land and our animals. And we strongly believe in sustainability.
We recommend that you purchase sufficient product for your project. There can be variations between batches.
All of our products are made with love. Please handle with care!
