Alpaca & Merino 4ply, Naturally Dyed


Alpaca & Merino is naturally dyed  and comes in a variety of beautiful shades for all your knitting, crochet and weaving projects.

The yarn:

Alpaca & Merino 4ply yarn is soft and luxurious, perfect for special children’s clothes, accessories like scarves and cowls, or as garments. Merino wool is very fine and soft and combines well with alpaca fibre to give lovely soft garments with some stitch definition. The alpaca means it also drapes so can be used for shawls, drape cardigans etc. Why not choose one of our patterns?

The colours:

Please  note, colours won’t always be from the same dye batch, so if you need more than 1 or 2 skeins, let me know and I can custom dye for you in the quantity you need for you project. These yarns are carefully hand dyed so there will be subtle tonal variations in the skeins which makes them even more beautiful!

All the colours are fixed with a mineral mordant (alum) which ensures they are light and colourfast. The dyes are all natural, and the mordant is safe and environmentally friendly. No nasty chemicals here!

Yellow: dyed with chamomile for a clear soft yellow

Pink: dyed with cochineal for a range of pink tones

Green: a mix of chamomile yellow and Saxon blue to give a gentle mint green

Dark Green: Rhubarb root yellow and Saxon Blue for a strong green

Peach: from madder

Mustard: Rhubarb root gives this rich colour
