Description

A plump and lustrous yarn with beautiful drape. Baby alpaca for softness, tussah silk for sheen and linen for texture to produce a rustic yet luxurious yarn. The linen softens after dyeing and takes up the dye differently to the alpaca and silk to produce a subtle marled effect. The pale honey colour of the tussah silk and the unbleached linen add a delicate natural biscuit colour to the yarn producing a wonderful depth of colour when overdyed. Perfect for shawls or outer garments such as cardigans. Spun in Italy.

PFD means “Prepared for Dyeing”.
