Robin’s Nest – Shetland/Cheviot/Alpaca

£10.50

40% Shetland/40% Cheviot/20% Alpaca

This is a beautiful blend of Shetland, Cheviot and alpaca.  It’s soft, crimpy and has a slight halo, thanks to the alpaca.  Both alpaca and Shetland are beautifully warm, so whatever you make with this it will keep you cosy and toasty.  Shetland and Cheviot are both British wools, and are very resilient, so this blend is perfect for things like socks and mittens.  Shetland especially has fantastic water resistant properties, so it would also make for great hats to wear in wintry snow. It would almost make wonderful sweaters!

I can easily wear this blend next to my skin, but it might be slightly too coarse for those sensitive to wool.

Colours & Inspiration

This gentle but deceptively complex colourway was inspired by a picture of a robin’s egg, settled in its nest.  The colours are easy on the eyes – a lovely mauve/blue, muted turquoise and soft brown. Dyed onto the subtle humbug grey base, this will give a wonderful depth of colour to any finished yarn.

Each braid weighs approximately 100g.
