Have you been waiting for our sock yarn? Wait no longer, it's here!

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 ...

20% Nylon and 80% Alpaca, made from the fleece of our own herd of alpacas, specifically, Moon and Aria. This high end, superior quality yarn is sock weight and 3ply, making it perfect for hard wearing socks. Another secret we can let you in on, this yarn is produced with the 2nds of the alpaca blanket. This yarn is slightly coarser (compared to our prime, silky blankets). It's still as soft as you know our yarns to be, but this slightly coarser fibre mixed with nylon is a dream team!  You can't believe how amazing it feels on the needles. Soft, durable and hypoallergenic. Can I say more?! 

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 cream colour of the alpacas 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.
