Description

Lustrous, smooth and soft, baby Suri alpaca is wrapped around a silk core then brushed to produce a super soft yarn with a light and airy halo.

This yarn is wonderfully versatile and can be used in a wide range of projects. It knits up beautifully on its own on a wide range of needle sizes. Combine it with a fingering/sock weight or DK weight yarn to add warmth and texture without weight to jumpers, scarves and cowls.

All yarns have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding, in various amounts, depending on the fibres used and how the yarn is spun. Brushed yarns have more of these loose fibres than other yarns, and tend to shed more, so some shedding is to be expected with this yarn.

Suggested Needle/Hook Sizes and Gauge:
Needle Size: 3 - 6mm (US 2.5 - 10) needles and D - J hook
Gauge (stocking stitch): 18-25 sts over 10cm/4 inches

Care Instructions:
Hand wash using a wool detergent, ideally below 30°C, avoid wringing and twisting. Dry flat out of direct sunlight, do not spin or tumble dry.
