    Please remember to select the type of yarn you would like to purchase (either Medium or Fine) from the drop down menu above.

    Knitting tension:
    Fine: 20 sts and 29 rows on 4 mm needles over a 10 cm square.
    Medium: 17 sts and 24 rows on 5 mm needles over a 10 cm square.
    We recommend always knitting a tension square to check your tension against the pattern you are working from and adjust needle size accordingly.

    Yarn colour:
    Purl’s 100% pure alpaca yarn is not dyed, all the colours are completely natural and the fibre is source from local breeders. Due to our yarn being completely natural colours there will be a variation in the different batches made depending on what colour fleece goes into each particular blend.

    Yarn softness:
    Our yarn is created using alpaca fleeces sourced mainly from farms in the South of England. Our own herd of 26 alpacas always go in the blend as well as fibre from farms we know and trust. We only use the finest fibre for our yarn and create a stunning and soft end product that is lovely to knit with and feels amazing to wear!

    Yarn thickness:
    Our yarn comes in two thicknesses; Fine and Medium. Fine is equivalent to Sports weight (this thickness is in between 4 ply and DK) and Medium is a Worsted weight (this thickness lies between DK and Aran).

    Alpaca fleece is a fantastically colour diverse fibre and we love this shade of reddish brown. We mix incredibly fine and soft alpaca fleeces of brown and red shades to create this yarn. The tone reminds us of Icelandic mountain sides and iron rich earth and makes us want to go hiking wrapped up in warm and soft knitwear!

    “This yarn is like spun unicorn fluff not alpaca, it is stunning! “
