- Fibre content: 60% Highland Wool, 40% Superfine Alpaca
- Length: 65 metres (75 yards) per 50g skein
- Recommended needle sizes: 4.5mm - 6mm (US 7-10)
- Washing: Soak in cool water and block on a towel, due to the alpaca content the garments do take a while to dry, so block in a warm place if possible. Do not use leave in wool washes for this yarn as this may encourage the dye to run, a delicate fabric wash is the best option.
