    Seriously, this is the best thing I’ve ever felt!  ‘Next to the skin’ softness and oh so warm.  Very limited edition; made from the fibre of Tracy’s herd; worsted spun at Two Rivers Mill in Dorset.

    Oh, this is lovely, you should double your price” Erika Knight, Alexandra Palace, Oct 2018

    Yarn Colour:
    A natural blend of fleeces to make this golden colour; Purl’s 100% pure alpaca yarn is not dyed, all the colours are completely natural;

    Yardage:

    25g cake (approximately 67.5 m)
    50g cake (approximately 135 m)

    This thickness is a 4 ply or sports weight

    Knitting Tension:

    We recommend always knitting a tension square to check your tension against the pattern you are working from and adjust needle size accordingly.

    When calculating the amount required for you to make one of our Fine Yarn patterns, multiply the number of balls required by 116, then divide by 270.  This will give you the required number of skeins to buy.  If in doubt, contact tracy@purlalpacadesigns.com.
