Bohemia Gothic grown and made in New Zealand is a variation of the Bohemia yarn (now a DK weight yarn), with the same construction and fibre content (45% Polwarth, 45% Alpaca, 10% Possum) except that the Alpaca is black which means the base colour is a gorgeous rich dark grey.
Inspired by gothic horror novels but only deep and interesting effects here which will work beautifully with the existing Bohemia Worsted shades or indeed on their own.
Deliciously soft and silky, Bohemia is a stunning blend of luxury fibres. Combining the extreme softness and warmth of Possum and Alpaca with the extra long staple and lustre of Polwarth, Bohemia ticks every box. The Polwarth provides stitch definition, memory and sheen, the Alpaca gives a silky drape and the Possum content is perfectly balanced to bring a subtle marl and soft halo to the knitted yarn. Possum has similar qualities to mink. The fibres are hollow, light, non-itchy, extremely warm and, unlike angora), Possum fibre is pill resistant. Alpaca is an extraordinarily fine fibre with microscopic air pockets creating unique thermal properties.
It’s durable, non-flammable and non-itchy containing no lanolin with a smooth cell structure.
