These inconsistencies within the yarn add to the special effect of this incredible yarn.

Henrietta – Fingering/ 4ply yarn is an unusual blend of alpaca and Australian Polwarth sheep. It is beautifully soft yarn is a 80/20 blend of Polwarth (sheep) and alpaca. Its neutral tones makes it great for a range of next to the skin knits. We certainly have select both fibres carefully to provide this yarn with a super-soft luxurious feel whilst beautifully capturing the essence of Western Victoria, the geography, the climate and the heritage.The polwarth is from Tarndie . The entire journey of this yarn is only 225 kms from farm to yarn, including the scourer in Geelong.

Our alpaca is from Euliyana Alpacas near Ararat.

The Process:

The wool has been scoured to remove the lanolin, but it is not carbonised. It means that it is better for for you and the environment. Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill wash all of their alpaca fibre with rain water and a low phosphate detergent, therefore you may still find some grass seeds in the yarn.

Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill have designed this yarn by bringing both fibres together during the process to create this lovely Fingering/4ply alpaca merino yarn.

All of Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill yarns are semi-worsted.

Our solar system supplies most of the electricity for the Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill processing.

Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill want to take care of their property, their land and their animals and strongly believe in sustainability.
