A Peak District holiday that won't cost the Earth

Alpaca Yarn

Top Eccles Alpaca Yarn

(natural undyed yarn from the Peak District)

Wow can't believe we are now on fleeces yr 6 to 9. We have just received our lastest supply of 2ply, 4 ply and DK yarn back from East Anglia Alpaca Mill. They have done a fantastic job of processing the fleeces and they have a lovely gentle handle and soft lustre.

My mum has already knitted me a scarf and beanie and from first-hand experience I can say from someone who suffers from woolly itches it is FABULOUS!

Colour wise we think Hercule’s is Ambrosia ( a lovely warm cream), while Horatio’s is more Champagne (a light bright cream)….
