This hard wearing, practical blend combines the very best of all three fibres: the alpaca is soft, durable and luxurious; the mohair is strong and shiny; whilst the Shetland adds structure, bounce and elasticity to the blend.

All of our animals are ethically raised and cared for on a protein rich diet so they produce the very best quality fibre.

- 50% Alpaca (20-24 micron)

A woollen spun yarn creates a hard wearing end product that is: 

- light and full of air
- fluffy or even hairy
- able to insulate well 
- makes a light and thick fabric when knitted.

The more it is worn and washed the softer it will become however without the pilling and stretching of a semi worsted or worsted finish.

How much yarn do I need

We get asked this a lot, especially by customers buying the wool as a gift. The hat pictured is 90 grams. A similar beanie style one without a pom pom (not pictured) weighs 65 grams and the gloves weigh 49 grams.
