A light weight yarn for gorgeous handknits. A 3ply fingering weight blend of Tencel (wood pulp) and Llama fibres. Sheen and softness for garments and accessories that are close to the skin. A suitable substitute for silk as it is a fine fingering weight luxury at an affordable price.
50% Baby Llama and 50% Lyocell - which is a refined wood pulp product - therefore this is a blend of two natural fibres - animal and plant. Produced in Peru by Mitchell Yarns especially for Alpaca Yarns New Zealand.
