Cocoon DK – Red Brick – Alpaca/Silk/Linen

£22.00

50% Alpaca / 25% Silk / 25% Linen   (approx 250m per 100g skein)

Cocoon DK is a delightfully squishy, soft, drapey DK weight yarn. It’s beautifully light, thanks to the alpaca and the linen, and the silk gives it a wonderful sheen and strength. Alpaca is a warmer fibre than wool, but it also wicks moisture away from the skin more effectively.   Linen is incredibly light and softens the more you wear it. Silk is just luxurious and hard wearing. All three fibres have lots of drape and little to no elasticity, making this perfect for garments with plenty of drape, such as loose t-shirts, cardigans and shawls.

Red Brick is a warm, soft orange-red, like the old bricks you find in garden walls, that have been warmed by the sun.
