Askham Aran in Bark (Dyelot 210219)

Hand dyed baby alpaca and silk aran weight yarn in colourway Bark.

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. 

Stats:

100g 

70% baby alpaca, 30% silk 

166m/180yds 

Recommended needle sizes: 4 - 5.5 mm (US 6 - 9)

Recommended hook sizes: 3.5 - 6mm (US E - J)

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.
