One of our favourite hand-dyers, Eden Cottage Yarns, has launched a new range of mill-dyed yarns to complement its existing colour collections. If you’re after super-soft pure alpaca, choose from Whitfell DK or Chunky, 100% baby alpaca yarns that are perfect for warm winter knits, in gorgeous bright, modern colours. These yarns are plied to reduce the risk of pilling, and as alpaca is hypoallergenic they’re great for baby knits or people who are sensitive to wool.
If you’re after a little extra luxury, try the Askham 4ply blend, which with 70% baby alpaca and 30% mulberry silk is a real treat for your crochet hook!
Also available in some of Eden Cottage’s most popular shades, this combines
the softness of alpaca with the strength and sheen of silk.
Whitfell DK £6.50 per 50g ball, Whitfell Chunky £13 per 100g skein, Askham 4ply £8 per 50g ball. www.edencottageyarns.co.uk
