Polwarth/ alpaca yarn:
Polwarth / alpaca yarn is an unusual blend of alpaca and Australian polwarth sheep. We 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 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 you may still find some grass seeds in the yarn.
We have designed this yarn by bringing both fibres together during the process reflecting the ruggedness if this area in the various colours of this gorgeously polwarth alpaca DK / 8ply yarn.
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!
