Soft but structured with a beautiful sheen, this light fingering-weight blend of 50% baby alpaca, 25% linen and 25% silk works perfectly on its own or carried together with another yarn. The linen content adds body and structure, making it perfect for both accessories and fine garments.
Dyed with plants collected around my neighbourhood in Glasgow, food waste and sustainably-produced raw plant material and dye extracts, these soft shades are relatively light-fast but, like all natural dyes, may change and develop over time, a quality valued by many cultures.
These particular shades were dyed with indigo/ pomegranate (left), oakmoss/ indigo (middle) and indigo (right and far right) and are varying shades of green and blue. Due to the nature of dyeing with indigo, all shades have some variation in colour.
