In your grandmother’s house there is an old boot, you never gave it importance because in your memory it only has old bed linen and other unimportant things. However, one day something makes you open it again. You remove the cobwebs, open it and among all those unimportant things you find a jewel.  A beautiful shawl that she used to wear, you remember seeing her wearing it in a photo, although due to the passage of time the colours have changed. It no longer has that original off-white, time and humidity have turned it into a yellowish white with darker traces and ochre stains in some parts… Happy you get that shawl back and with it a part of your loved ones comes alive and shines with you.

(this was what Ruth was very clear that she wanted to achieve with this colour, to evoke this feeling).

Yarn:

51% Baby Alpaca – 25% Linen – 24% Mulberry Silk.

Rustic and elegant, this fibre is highly recommended for spring and autumn, or all year round if you live in a warmer place. It’s low in warmth, not weighing you down, lightweight and very soft.

Description

This fibre is very original as the dyeing results in a mottled look. The Baby alpaca yarn provides the softness, the silk the shine and the linen the texture, resulting in a rustic but at the same time luxurious yarn.

As linen picks up colour differently to silk and alpaca (as it is a cellulosic fibre, not a protein fibre), the result is a subtle mottled effect that produces a wonderful depth of colour.

Baby Alpaca: Alpaca fibre comes from Peru. It is a shiny, silky and very soft yarn. It is warmer than yarn but not itchy and does not contain lanolin. It is hypoallergenic.

Washing recommendations: whenever possible, it is better to simply air the garment. If not, hand wash with water at a temperature below 30º with a neutral soap.  It is best to dry horizontally.

Please note that each skein is unique, those with mixed colours will never be exactly the same as the one in the photo.

Additional note: the colours may look different on each screen. But don’t worry, if you are not satisfied with the product when you receive it, we will start the return process without any problem.
