Baby Merino Aran has a simple construction of 2/3.5nm giving 175m (191 yds) per 100g hank. Its a beautifully soft blend of baby alpaca and 21 micron merino wool. 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 as the fibres have excellent insulation properties whilst remaining light and breathable. The baby alpaca is combined in equal measure with fine merino giving the yarn more bounce and elasticity.
The merino is mulesing free and comes from South America. The yarn is 100% animal fibre and perfect for dyeing.
