‘Cumbria’ is an alpaca and wool sock yarn. It is our own blend of 47% British alpaca, 43% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 10% nylon.
Cumbria Alpaca Sock yarn is available in its natural oatmeal and eight over-dyed shades which give depth to the yarn.
This yarn knits to Sock, Fingering weight or light 4 ply knitting patterns, (but always knit a tension swatch). There are approximately 400m per 100g. The yarn is sold in 100g hanks. If you would like us to ball your yarn for you, please make a note on the order.
Wash gently by hand or in the wool cycle of your machine with a small amount of non-bio detergent. Do not tumble dry. The yarn has been washed, but some surface residue dye may come out in the first wash, particularly with the deeper colours.
‘Whitbarrow’ is an Alpaca Fingering weight yarn. We have combined alpaca with Merino wool and silk to produce a Fingering knitting yarn in an exclusive blend which has been spun for us in the UK. This luxurious Fingering weight knitting wool is a blend of 45% Peruvian baby alpaca, 35% superfine, organic Falklands Merino wool and 20% Mulberry silk.
Whitbarrow Alpaca fingering yarn has been dyed in the Scottish Borders in a wide range of solid colours.
