This beautiful yarn is 80% New Zealand Polwarth wool and 20% New Zealand Alpaca wool and was spun by Wild Earth Yarn mill in Christchurch.
The Polwarth is a hardy sheep able to adapt to a range of climatic and regional conditions which makes it ideal for New Zealand's variable conditions. Bred from Saxon Merinos rams and Lincoln ewes over a hundred years ago, their wool has a soft handle and plenty of memory. Combined with the drape and distinctive halo of Alpaca, this yarn is both luxurious and earthy.
The 3ply construction lends it's self to cables and colourwork and is suitable for shawls, garments and babywear.
Each skein is 200m and approximately 100g.
Harmony DK/ 8ply is non treated so for best results hand wash in cold water.
