This yarn is hand made right here in NSW Australia by Sue & Ray in Glenorie who have spent the last 20 years developing & producing this yarn. The local alpaca fibre is core spun with natural cotton twine which makes it fairly rigid, while being very soft to touch.

This is another yarn that I have been using in my collection for over 9 years now. I have knitted a blanket with it, woven many wall hangings and used it to weave the Herringbone Cushions in my book The Woven Home (pictured) 

Also pictured is a weaving that I made where I used the yarn (which had been hand dyed) as a warp for a textured, super chunky weaving.
