A Peak District holiday that won't cost the Earth

Alpaca Yarn

Top Eccles Alpaca Yarn

(natural undyed yarn from the Peak District)

We are chuffed to bits with our first alpaca yarn spun for us by the lovely people of Griffiths Mill at Sudbury near Ashbourne. We diligently saved up 5 years, worth of fleece from our boys and it was worth waiting for. My mum has already knitted me a scarf 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, while Horatio’s is more Champagne….

2 Ply Baby Alpaca Yarn @ £15 per 50g skein

Our 2ply natural undyed yarn (on the right) from Hercules and Horatio was taken from their first fleece and is the finest we produce. Luxuriously soft this yarn can be crocheted or hand knitted to make beautiful lace shawls, scarves and baby clothes. We have limited stock and when its gone its gone. Unless of course we get more alpacas!
