A luxurious blend of 45% Polwarth / 45% Alpaca / 10% Possum

This worsted weight yarn will knit up fast for larger garments and will have all the softness and drape you need for accessories. The colour palette speaks of sophisticated subtlety, easy and flattering to wear and coordinate.

Deliciously soft and silky, Bohemia is a stunning blend of luxury fibres. Combining the extreme softness and warmth of Possum and Alpaca with the extra long staple and lustre of Polwarth, Bohemia ticks every box. The Polwarth provides stitch definition, 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. It’s durable, non-flammable and non-itchy containing no lanolin with a smooth cell structure.
