This is a chunky yarn with 50% wool, 40% acrylic and 10% alpaca. It feels wonderfully soft and the marled single ply gives a beautiful depth of colour. The shades we have in stock are all quite dark overall and so are tricky to get across on a computer screen, click on the images to take a closer look. Good yardage for a chunky yarn, it knits up to a slightly finer tension but can happily be knit on larger needles as the yarn has plenty of loft. One ball will make a good sized adult hat.
