Cocoon 4-ply – What’s Up Buttercup? – Alpaca/Silk/Linen
50% Alpaca / 25% Silk / 25% Linen (approx 400m per 100g skein)
Cocoon 4-ply is a fingering/sock weight yarn. It’s beautifully light, thanks to the alpaca and the linen, which softens with wear. This beautiful yarn feels feather light and delicate, but is very strong and hardwearing. Alpaca is a warmer fibre than wool, but it also wicks moisture away from the skin more effectively. Silk lends a slight sheen and plenty of strength. Linen is incredibly light and softens the more you wear it. All three fibres have lots of drape and little to no elasticity, making this perfect for light summer tees, cardigans and shawls.
What’s Up Buttercup is a fabulously bright and cheerful yellow. Alpaca always mutes colours slightly, so this is the most beautiful creamy, buttery yellow you can imagine. If anything will brighten up your day, this will.
