Core Spun Alpaca Rug Yarn

Weight: Jumbo
Blend: 98% alpaca 2% cotton (core)
WPI: 3
100% Australian made & owned

This yarn is hand made right here in NSW Australia by Sue & Ray in Glenorie who have spent the last 20 years developing & producing this yarn. The local alpaca fibre is core spun with natural cotton twine which makes it fairly rigid, while being very soft to touch.

This is another yarn that I have been using in my collection for over 7 years now. I have knitted a blanket with it, woven many wall hangings and used it to weave the Herringbone Cushions in my book The Woven Home (pictured) 

Also pictured is a weaving that I made where I used the yarn (which had been hand dyed) as a warp for a textured, super chunky weaving. 

Perfect for hand dyeing - this yarn soaks up vivid colours like a treat. 

Recommended reed for rigid heddle weaving: N/A
Recommended knitting needle size: 13mm+ (17+ US)
