We use natural alpaca colours to ‘create’ the above listed shades of yarn.

Fibre:
The merino we use is non-mulesed at 18 micron. It’s enitre journey from farm to scourer to us is ~300km.

The Process:
The wool has been scoured to remove the lanolin, but it is not carbonised. It means that it is better for for you and the environment. We wash all of the alpaca fibre with rain water and a low phosphate detergent, therefore you may still find some grass seeds in the yarn.

All of our yarns are semi-worsted.

Our solar system supplies most of the electricity for our processing.

We want to take care of our property, our land and our animals. And we strongly believe in sustainability.
