Eco Printed & Hand Painted Alpaca & Merino 4 ply yarn Col: Multi 02
Love this


This is a 70% Alpaca & 30% Merino wool this blend of wool and alpaca creates a great 4 ply multi twist yarn. This is ideal for shawls & scarfs or anything that you would like some drape in, a versatile yarn for garments and accessories. It has been Eco printed and hand painted with natural dyes and elements in the Yorkshire Dales, the yarn is locally spun just down the valley from me .
The eco printed yarns are all individual as the the magic happens through the dyeing technique used, only after it is all bound up & steamed is it that the final result emerges on unwrapping the yarn . This yarn is multi coloured with red, pinks, orange, cream & caramel.
I only use natural dyes to dye yarn with, in both plant form & extract as well as minerals & insect ( e.g.Cochineal and Lac which are both scale insects & have been used traditionally for hundreds of years) I usually use Alum & Cream of Tartar to modify my yarn .
Weight :100g skein
Approx 400mts/437yds , 4ply, Needles size:2.5 mm-3.5 mm
Dye Used: Lac, cochineal, onion skins, Brazil wood, madder& iron modifier.

To care for your yarn I would suggest that you always gently hand wash it in cool water with a gentle wool soap ( I like to use a no rinse wool wash )
