Eva DK / 8 ply yarn is an unusual blend of suri alpaca and Australian polwarth sheep. This is a collaborative yarn: designed and created by Tarndie and Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill.
Eva yarn is a soft delicate yarn, reflective of her name sake, Eva Carmichael, one of the two survivors of the infamous Loch Ard shipwreck from 1878.
The polwarth used in this yarn is from Tarndie and the suri alpaca is from Ambleside Merino & Alpaca Stud, the same farm Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill source their merino wool from.
