Loch Ard – Riverstone is wonderful blend of Polwarth sheep wool and alpaca. This yarn is an aran weighted yarn (bulky) and in this weight will make the ideal winter product. Strong, robust, but soft and wearable.
We have designed this yarn by bringing both fibres together during the process. It reflects the ruggedness of this area in this gorgeously Loch Ard – Riverstone Aran Weight / 10- 12ply yarn.
The Polwarth is from Tarndie . ~180 yeas of breeding have gone into creating this wonderful polwarth sheep fibre. The entire journey of this yarn is only 225 kms from farm to yarn.
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, it is possible that you may still find some grass seeds in the yarn.
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 being sustainable and environmentally friendly. These aren’t just catch phrases, they are a way of life.
We recommend that you purchase sufficient product for your project. There can be variations between batches.
We make all our products with love. Please handle with care!
