Polwarth suri (alpaca) dk/ 8 ply yarn:
Eva dk / 8 ply yarn: This yarn is an unusual blend of suri alpaca and Australian polwarth sheep. This is a collaborative yarn: designed and created by Tarndie and us.
Eva yarn is a soft delicate yarn, reflective of her name sake, Eva Carmichael, one of 2 survivors of the infamous Loch Ard shipwreck from 1878.
We select both fibres carefully to provide this yarn with a super-soft luxurious feel.
The polwarth is from Tarndie . The entire journey of this yarn is only 225 kms from farm to yarn, including the scourer in Geelong.
Our suri alpaca is from Ambleside Merino & Alpaca Stud – yes, the same farm we got our merino wool from.
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!
