Description

Forget-Me-Not was inspired by… surprise… the small and delicate forget-me-not flower!

Made with a high quality blend of baby alpaca, silk, and cashmere, this yarn works up to standard fingering weight knitting and crochet patterns. The strong, but delicate fibres in this blend are suited to the care and attention that comes from a cool hand wash only. It has a 4-ply construction which gives excellent stitch definition, but also has a natural sheen and drape that makes it perfect for special luxury projects.

Baby alpaca makes up 70% of this yarn. Alpaca is one of the finest luxury fibres. But even more this is baby alpaca, which is the first and finest fleece that an alpaca ever produces. Alpaca is considered to be warmer than most wool yarns, yet lighter. It is also:

  • fire-resistant and will naturally extinguish a flame
  • breathable and naturally wicks away water
  • creates a temperature-regulating effect
  • naturally renewable with alpaca growing a new fleece each year
  • biodegradable, and compostable at the end of its life cycle, putting nutrients back into the ground
  • resistant to odour, soiling, and water/spills (meaning less washing is needed)
  • natural silky sheen

Silk is another component of this yarn and makes up 20%. Silk has an incredibly smooth surface, and is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics because as well as dust mites it also resists funguses and moulds. It is incredibly strong and durable, and can retain its beauty for many years.

Cashmere is the final component of this yarn, making up 10% of it. It is renowned for its luxury softness, which is created by its amazing fineness. It is approximately 19 microns in thickness (a human hair ranges between 60-120). Cashmere is known to be up to 8 times warmer than regular sheep’s wool, wrinkle resistant, and has a beautiful drape. Like alpaca it is also breathable, temperature-regulating, and fire-resistant.
