Hand Spun British Alpaca Yarn

Singles (Very fine laceweight yarn - 200 yards, knit on 1.5/2mm needles)

Two-Ply (Approximately equivalent to double knitting - 100 yards, knit on 4/5mm needles)

All our yarn comes gift wrapped and complete with a certificate and photographs of the
actual Alpaca which supplied the fleece each hank is also tagged with the Alpaca's face!

Yarn from each Alpaca will be truly limited and once sold, we will have to wait a year, sometimes two
for that particular Alpaca to be shorn again

You can also have gift-wrapped knitting kits containing two hanks, a certificate, patterns for scarves and optional knitting needles
The certificates can be personalised with the name of your relative or friend and a special message

Each hank is especially spun for you, so please allow up to two weeks for completion
Please contact via e-mail before ordering if you would like a particular shade or to check an alpaca's name; or would like your yarn spun to a different specification (e.g. plied or with the addition of colours or effects)
If your order is for more than three hanks please e-mail to check current workload !
