Specialty Designer Yarns
Alpaca, Merino, Mohair. 2oz Skein, 225 yds.
What's better than hand-knit socks? Hand-knit Alpaca Socks!
This lustrous blend of Alpaca, Fine Merino and Mohair make a luxurious sock or fingering weight project. The slight haloing effect of the mohair, belies the strength and durability that natural fibre enthusiasts love. The loftiness and drape of the alpaca will make these socks a dream to knit and block the finished item into a item worthy of an heirloom. The elasticity and temperature regulation granted by the merino makes sure your item keep you warm, but not too warm!
Hand-wash and lay flat to dry.
Each colour is kettle-dyed to order. Kettle dyeing gives that beautiful tonal effect that is unique to each dye-lot! Please allow 2-4 business days additional turn around time for order including this item. (We think it's worth the wait!) Be sure to order enough for your project, as each shipment will be it's own dye-lot. We are dyeing only these 5 colours at this time.
