  • This is our finest, softest alpaca yarn for hand knitting, crochet or weaving. The yarn is warm yet light and durable.  These fleeces are purchased from UK alpaca breeders and carefully sorted and blended at Town End before being sent for spinning in Britain. This naturally coloured yarn, which is a blend of whites, greys and black, has been semi-worsted spun, which gives it a silky drape.

    Our alpaca yarn can be knitted using standard aran-weight patterns, but we recommend that you make a tension square first.

    As we only produce small quantities and batches vary, please ensure that you order sufficient to finish your project.

    Approximately 83m per 50g.  Sold in 50g balls.

  • The Walker Cardigan is more feminine than the Blackett Cardigan, a classic, slightly lacy cardi in moss st and a leafy lace with a few bobbles thrown in on the sleeves.

The bobbles are very easy, as is the leafy lace pattern on the fronts and the sleeves.
