What's it like to knit with?

Here's how
the story goes

Baby alpaca fibre is taken from the neck and nape of the animal and is often from the first shearing of an alpaca, giving you the most beautiful fibre the animal is likely to produce. This is combined with the softest Merino Wool, which is sourced from Uruguay and made in Peru.
