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.
