Askham Aran in Larkspur (Dyelot 300321)

Hand dyed baby alpaca and silk aran weight yarn in colourway Larkspur - this is just a really simple, beautiful, powdery blue.

This soft, dreamy yarn is such a joy to work with and wear - it creates a warm, fluffy, and drapey fabric which can feel heavy to work with but is still lovely and light to wear. The gentle sheen shows through the alpaca fluff, meaning that stitch definition is not crisp but is still visible. 

70% baby alpaca, 30% silk 
4 - 5.5 mm needles (US 6 - 9)
3.5 - 6mm hook (US E - J)
10 WPI
Handwash (no detergent), squeeze out as much excess water as possible, and lay flat to dry. 

We recommend that you wash dark colours separately or wash a swatch before using dark and light colours together.

As with all hand dyed yarns, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless it's a one-skein project).

Although it is spun as a standard thickness aran yarn, being baby alpaca/silk means that it is fine and can be worked at tighter gauge than you might normally expect for an aran yarn. However in testing it worked well for us at a good range of gauges in both knitting and crochet.
