Alpaca Darning Yarn - Complete Set (23 Colours)
This alpaca yarn set covers the full colour spectrum and is beautifully presented in a sturdy white box with magnetic front flap - a gorgeous gift for any mender!
It includes 23 different shades (a combination of our standard and very fine ranges) and a massive 230 metres of yarn from bright tones to neutrals.
A soft yet strong 2-ply alpaca yarn is perfect for repairs to finely knitted garments such as alpaca, cashmere or merino.
This luxurious yarn is spun and dyed in Peru using 100% baby alpaca fibre - five colours from this set are actually deadstock yarns leftover from the textile production process making them even more earth-friendly.
It contains no added synthetic fibres unlike most darning wool or mending yarns and therefore releases no micro-plastics in the wash. We much prefer to source pure yarn which helps to reduce our impact on the planet, so this one gets a big tick from us!
Not only that, but did you know alpaca is ideal for those who are sensitive to other wool fibres? Alpacas do not produce any lanolin at all, which makes pure alpaca wool hypoallergenic and safe for allergy sufferers.
It can be split down to a single strand for mending fine knitwear, or doubled up if you require a thicker yarn for your mending project.
Each card contains approximately 10 m (33 ft) of yarn.
