Bohemia Light is a luxurious mix of 45% Polwarth, 45% Alpaca and 10% Possum fibre. Deliciously soft and silky to the touch, Bohemia is the perfect blend of luxury fibres. Combining the extreme softness and warmth of Possum and Alpaca with the extra long staple and lustre of Polwarth.

Carefully chosen colours with a Victoriana theme, including a generous collection of neutrals to contrast with stunning vibrant brights and moody darks. The 50g ball size will appeal to those who enjoy colour work and the sport weight is perfect for creating finer garments and accessories and works up a lot faster than fingering.

The Polwarth provides excellent stitch definition, stitch memory and sheen, the Alpaca gives a silky drape and the Possum content is perfectly balanced to bring a subtle marl and soft halo to the knitted yarn. Possum has similar qualities to mink. The fibres are hollow, light, non-itchy, extremely warm and (unlike angora) Possum is pill resistant. Alpaca is an extraordinarily fine fibre with microscopic air pockets creating unique thermal properties. Its durable, non-flammable and non-itchy containing no lanolin with a smooth cell structure.
