Sumptuous is a wonderful soft and full new yarn, and 100% New Zealand.
The Extra Refined Colours are in store and we still have a few of the original colours in stock.
With a gentle blend of Polwarth Wool and Alpaca Fibre, Sumptuous really is a sight to behold. Polwarth is the Merino’s closest cousin – sharing all the properties we know and love – but with more shine, less shrinkage and better drape. Heavenly.
Sumptuous has a magic puff factor that allows the yarn to gauge across many needles and patterns, so you can have a play with anything from DK to worsted, 4mm to 7mm. Knit fine for a rich full finish, or knit on larger points for a flowing soft drape.
Sumptuous was designed with many applications in mind, delicate small baby pieces, large flowing draping garments, thick delicious throws and blankets. Super soft and low irritant hats, squishy mitts and cuddly jumpers, the fibre blend is incredible to work with in versatility and knitting pleasure.
Sumptuous colour range has been inspired by the shades of Wanaka NZ, home of The Woven. Enjoy stories of Wanaka and the colours selected inside each wool wrap. This palette is very NOW, and the range has evolved to new colours with attitude.
