Alpaca with Merino and Silk DK Yarn
Thames Double Knit Yarn in Tyburn
‘Thames‘ is an alpaca double knit (DK) knitting yarn made from an exclusive blend spun for us in the UK. Our luxurious double knit is a mix of 45% Peruvian baby alpaca, 35% superfine, organic Falklands Merino wool and 20% Mulberry silk.
We have our Thames Alpaca DK yarn dyed in the Scottish Borders in seven muted, sophisticated colours: Kennet, Tyburn, Windrush, Fleet, Churn, Effra, Falconbrook. We also have an undyed option, Evenlode. Tyburn is a dark, charcoal grey.
This yarn knits to standard double knitting patterns, (but always knit a tension swatch). I wind the yarn into 100g hanks, which is approximately 225m. If you would like us to ball your yarn for you, please make a note on the order.
