Libby Summers Fine Aran
This is a lovely soft and luxurious blend of 50% FS Alpaca and 50% Peruvian Highland Wool with a closely wound texture and a fantastic yardage. It looks equally good knitted up in textured patterns, tartan and tweed or in contrasting blocks of colour. Many of these options are reflected in the pattern ranges. The original collection of six exciting deep and vibrant colours reflects the colour scheme of the Quechua peoples the yarn originates from. The patterns available in this yarn reinterpret the colour scheme into our own cultural context. In 2014, four pastel colours were added as a contrast in the range.
