Biches e Buches have been working on this yarn for a long time and we are so excited to stock it in Knit With Me for our lovely customers. It is a gorgeous blend of 66% GOTS cotton and 34% Super Fine Alpaca which makes a deliciously soft yarn.
Le Coton & Alpaca is a great choice for spring and autumn (and summer in certain countries) and it's perfect if you like a heavier drape than with wool. Also the palet is just beautiful and makes for a gorgeous marled material. This is more obvious when there is a higher contrast between the blown alpaca fibre and the cotton tube.
