Knit Naturelle Alpaca
Alpaca yarn is similar to merino wool but warmer, softer and silkier. It contains no lanolin which makes it hypoallergenic. Alpacas are gentle on the environment and alpaca fibre can be called organic, although it is not certified as such. Our Alpaca yarn is sourced from Peru and comes in two weights, 4ply or sock and double knitting, both in hanks/skeins of 100g. It is a delight to knit as it is as soft as butter, with a luxurious finish.
Knit Naturelle Organic merino wool
Our super fine merino wool comes from Australia and is certified organic by the Global Organic Textile Standard. http://www.global-standard.org/ It is available in 4 weights - sock, sport (4ply), double knitting and aran, all wound in 100g hanks/skeins.
The naturally coloured wool is produced under organic conditions and is so soft and luxurious that it can be worn next to the skin of even the most delicate babies and toddlers (or grown ups!), while at the same time giving a durable fabric which will endure numerous hand washes. The organic wool has not been treated chemically throughout the entire production, from the farm to the finished yarn. The greasy wool is scoured (cleaned) in a special approved biodegradable cleansing agent before being carded and spun at a certified organic mill. The yarn isn't dyed, but is available in natural cream.
Organic merino wool is naturally non allergenic and is soft and comfortable to wear. The wool helps to regulate body temperature enabling the wearer (even babies) to retain the optimum safe temperature in hot or cold conditions. The natural properties of organic merino wool allow the skin to "breathe" and the wool absorbs impurities and residues.
