SKU: 4PLYOXALIS_BAS_AL Categories: , , , ,


Hand-dyed using the flowers of the weed oxalis. Alum mordant was used. The pH was raised to give an orange rather than the bright yellow.

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.

4 ply.  Approx. 320m.
