Goooorgeously soft

I’ve not got far in the toy I’m making with this yarn but I love it already. It’s lovely to hold and use, and think it will be perfect for a cuddly soft toy. The colours are really interesting and add a bit of depth- I also go the reddish one to make a highland cow. Only thing I’d be aware of is it’s quite thin for an Aran - I’m using a 4.5mm hook and its still a tiny bit gappy. But I kind of suspected this when I ordered it. Overall very happy with it.

Squishy Soft

First time using this yarn, and so far only knitted a swatch for a project. It’s knitted up beautifully, gauge is perfect and I love the colour, and the softness. Will definitely be using this yarn again.

Squishy Soft

So far only used to swatch for item, but love the feel; so soft and the colour is true to advertised. Good price too! 🥰

Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

An exciting “blow yarn” made from soft baby alpaca and cozy and warm merino wool. As implied in blow yarn, this quality has an unique construction where instead of spinning, the fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool are air blown into a tube together. This makes the garments made in this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventional spun yarns of the same thickness.

 

Made in Peru / EU
