The Super Fine range of yarns has a gorgeous, soft handle that knits up beautifully. The yarns are 75% British superfine alpaca blended with 25% wool, manufactured in the UK. The alpaca in our yarns is sourced from alpaca farms based in the UK.
This is a proven blend that offers increased resistance to shedding and pilling and adds loft and substance to the yarn.

Hand washing: Use lukewarm water and a specialist wool detergent. Hair conditioner in the final rinse will add extra softness. When washing and rinsing squeeze the garment rather than rubbing. Gently squeeze out excess water before rolling in a towel. Lay flat to dry.
Washing machines: Modern machines with special wool wash cycles will also be fine but it is always advisable to check first by washing a tension square and then checking the final dry size.
