Du Store Alpakka
Availability : In stock
A tweed blend which is sturdy yet soft against the skin. In a classic aran weight it is perfect for those winter favourites.
Is it possible for tweed to be as sturdy as it should, but at the same time super-squishy and soft? It is now! Alpakka Tweed from Du Store Alpakka is a classic aran weight yarn - perfect for those cosy winter knits but still so soft it can be worn close to your skin. It is a loosly spun blend of 50% Alpaca, 30% Merino Wool and 20% Donegal fibre which gives those beautifully contrasting flecks of colour. Du Store Alpakka supports the local communities in Peru through the Mirasol Project. Peru’s heritage and culture of textile artistry is rich and ancient. The Du Store Alpakka yarns are made from the animals tended by these communities for generations in the Peruvian highlands. A portion of every purchase goes directly to the funding of a boarding centre and school in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno.
