  • This is a naturally coloured dark grey Alpaca with Shetland 4ply knitting wool. I dyed the wool nepps in a variety of bright colours and mixed them with undyed nepps.  These were carded into the fibre before it was spun to produce a subtle tweed effect.

    The yarn is a blend of 84% British alpaca and 16% local Shetland fleece with wool nepps.

    The yarn has been woollen spun for a lofty handle.  There are approximately 304m per 100g and it is sold in 100g hanks.

    If you would like the hanks balled for you, please make a note on your order.

  • ‘Kalinka’ is a 100% linen yarn produced in Sweden by Holma Helsingland for Karin Oberg.  This yarn comes in a wide range of beatiful jewel and intense colours as well as some more natural shades.  It’s a great yarn for summer tops and I’ve knitted several jumpers in this yarn over the years.  The linen feels a bit stiff to begin with, but it softens up on washing and wearing.

    You can use patterns designed for linen with this yarn, or other fingering/4ply patterns – but do check your gauge first.  Bear in mind that you will produce a more open fabric and the drape will be different, so not all pattern designs will be suitable. I typically use a 3.25 or 3.5mm needle over Stocking Stitch with this yarn.

    We currently stock fourteen shades of Kalinda Linen.

    There are approximately 320m per 100g and the yarn is sold in 100g hanks.

    I wash this yarn in the wool cycle of my machine with a small amount of non-bio detergent.  I block the garment out to shape while still damp.
