Hand-dyed using leaves from the Narrow-leaved peppermint tree (Eucalyptus radiata). No mordant was used. This is a rich rust colour and still has a hint of gum leaf smell!
This laceweight commercially processed yarn has been made from local suri alpaca, superfine merino and bamboo. The full production process, from scouring to spinning was also undertaken locally on a small run basis. This yarn is super soft and has a luxuriant feel with lovely sheen from the suri and bamboo combination. Would knit up beautifully into a light and warm triangular shawl or lacy cardigan. Also perfect for baby’s wear and lightweight blankets. Can be custom dyed.
