This combination of purpley reds and blue, inspired by a gorgeous butterfly that occurs at a few sites in the North East, has been one of our most popular in other weights. This version of the colourway is somewhat lighter than previous versions but we have retained the name as the dyeing process, using a combination of dried plant material and natural indigo extract is the same.
This is a real luxury yarn consisting of 50% Suri alpaca and 30% merino making it super soft. The 20% silk content gives a gorgeous lustre and feel and leads to an excellent drape in knitted items. This means that this is ideal for knitted shawl or stole projects, excellent for a special handmade present, or just as a treat for yourself. Be careful when balling up as the yarn tangles easily and as with all our laceweights we recommend that you do not use with a skein winder to avoid the risk of snapping the yarn.

Skein weighing 100g, length approx 1200m (1320yards).

Gentle hand washing recommended, for full care details and information on us and our yarns please visit our website www.naturalborndyers.com.
