This special 100% Australian Aran Weight Alpaca and Superfine Merino blend yarn feels incredibly soft. It is a 2 strand yarn. The yarn has been created to have a deliberate and unusual visual texture rather then a smooth blend therefore there is likely to be colour variations within each skein. These inconsistencies within the yarn add to the special effect of this incredible yarn.

The merino is from Ambleside Merino. It is gorgeously soft with amazing comfort and elasticity. The entire journey of this yarn is only 225 kms from farm to yarn. It is a superfine,notsuper-washed, yarn – therefore, as environmentally friendly as a yarn can be.
Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill carefully select all of their alpaca from specific breeders and all their fibre is from within Victoria.
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. Or there is the the superfine merino fingering/4ply which brings two strands of the merino together.
All of Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill yarns are semi-worsted.
Their 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.
