  • Description

    Baby Silk 4 Ply is one of our most luxurious yarns. The yarn count is 3/12nm giving 400m per 100g of super soft baby alpaca is blended with mulberry silk. Baby Alpaca is one of the most luxurious fabrics in the world. It is incredibly warm, light weight and strong. It has hypoallergenic properties, it contains no lanolin, which makes the fibre safe to wear if you have skin allergies. Alpaca is said to be three times warmer than sheep’s wool, the fibres have excellent insulation properties whilst remaining light and breathable. The silk gives it a shiny smooth lustre which feels soft and luxurious to work with. This yarn is 100% natural fibre and perfect for dyeing. To be successful we recommend using acid or natural dyes to create bright and vibrant colours, however, the natural colour of the yarn is very pale so pastel and lighter shades also work well. Baby Silk 4 ply is especially suited to weaving, knitting and crochet; making scarves, shawls, wraps, baby and adult garments.
