This morning we woke up to snow!

It has definitely reminded us that although in our heads we are swiftly moving towards lighter and warmer days there are still a good few months of jumper wearing weather ahead!
What better to knit with than some winter white alpaca? Did you know that all our ivory shade alpaca yarn is totally undyed? We never put any harsh chemicals in touch with our fleece, no dyes, no bleach, we think the alpaca fleece is stunning just the way it is! Our fleeces are all sourced in the UK and spun here too! This is a product you can wear and feel fabulous inside and out!
There are so many projects to choose from that look stunning in our ivory coloured yarn.
Here are a few of our favourites:
The Camilla Hat looks stunning in our ivory yarn. The hat has so many different stitch patterns and texture and the light coloured yarn really shows this off! If you love cables, lace patterns and other intricate stitches; Camilla is the perfect project for you!
Wearing the Glacier Cardigan is just like wearing your own personal blanket! The second benefit is that it keeps you warm whilst knitting too! Knitted from our Chunky yarn and on big needles, this is a quick and easy project with a stunning end result.
The Dilly Snood is an open and lightweight neckpiece. Warm enough for snowy days yet lightweight enough not to be claustrophobic. Dilly is knitted on circualr needles and you get a lot of warmth for only 3 balls of wool! Perfect for thos who just can’t be bothered with scarfs flapping in the wind.
So, what do you think? Is ivory the colour for you? Our alpacas have decided that it definitely does the job for them!
Tracy, Kari-Helene & the alpacas! xxx
