Indulge in the luxurious softness of our 100% alpaca yarn, made from the fleece of our own herd of alpacas, specifically, Balachan, Bert and Damascus.

Swaying too and fro in your hammock, suspended below decks. Listening to the creak of timbers as the ship slices through the Atlantic. You're lulled to sleep by the words of the old hands, sea monsters and nymps. Things they saw or didnt see. Suddenly the shop stops and you're disturbed from your slumber. A flurry of activity starts as words creeps below deck... the kraken has come ...

This high end, superior quality yarn is sport weight and 3ply, making it perfect for a wide range of knit and crochet projects. Our yarn is maritime milled and eco-friendly, ensuring that each skein is produced sustainably and with minimal environmental impact. Our alpacas are raised right on our farm, this yarn is cruelty-free and hypoallergenic, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin. The natural shiny white/cream colour of the alpaca fleece gives this yarn a beautifully earthy and warm tone, perfect for creating timeless and classic pieces. Whether you're making a cozy sweater, a delicate shawl, or a pair of luxurious alpaca socks, this yarn is the perfect choice for your next project.
