A one-off batch of a few skeins I snapped up - so one-off I don't have a special yarn "name" for it yet!

This is a lovely blend of 50% alpaca, 25% linen, 25% silk. It is drapey, cool and very soft with a heathered look from the linen fibres that resist the dyes. A yarn that will soften the more it is used and worn. Bear in mind the drape when choosing a suitable pattern for this.

100 g skein / 400 m approx. (~440 yds).

Dyed in batches of two for larger shawls (although you can get smaller shawlettes /stoles and cowls out of one skein.

 

Needle size dependant on your gauge and pattern. It is recommended that you always knit a sample swatch to determine the correct needle size for your own knitting tension as this varies from person to person.

Barber Black Sheep recommends all their hand dyed yarns should be hand washed gently in a suitable detergent for delicate items for best results.

This is an in-stock item ready to be shipped. If you purchase dyed-to-order yarns at the same time, this yarn will be shipped at the same time as the custom dyed yarns.
