All made from natural yarns such as
cashmere, silk, baby alpaca, cotton
and Merino wool.
The yarns we
The softest alpaca yarn comes from a baby’s first
shearing, generally from around the neck, where it is
fluffiest. It is a soft, fine, durable, luxurious and a
silky natural fibre. Yarn made from alpaca fibres
does not felt or pill easily and it can be light or heavy
in weight, depending on how it is spun. While similar
to sheep's wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no
lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic.
The baby alpaca and silk yarn that we use is spun
from 3 strands in a combination of the best of two
wonderful fibres, being a mix of 70% baby alpaca (for
the softness) and 30% mulberry silk (for strength and
glossy shine). The yarn fibres are untreated, which
means they are only washed and not exposed to any
chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights
the fibre’s natural properties, while it also provides a
better shape and texture quality.
It is great for baby garments, soft against the skin,
cooling when hot and warm when cold.
Our Baby Merino is spun from 100% merino wool fibres
(19.5 micron) from free-range animals. Not only is it a
super soft and itch-free wool yarn perfectly suited for
delicate baby skin, Baby Merino is also superwash
treated which makes it machine washable and ideal for
daily use. Baby Merino is constructed by spinning
multiple thin strands which gives extra elasticity. Our
Baby Merino yarn is cable spun, which means the
stitches are clearly defined, and the result achieved is
neat and even. Made in the EU, this yarn has Oeko-

They use only longer fleece in all their yarn types
which means that they are able to produce all their
yarns on worsted system. The fibres are washed,
carded and then combed (aligned) before spinning.
Worsted spun yarns form longer staple fibres, are
more luxurious and refined, stronger and will feel
softer and smoother. The use of longer, combed fibre
and the removal of the shorter fibres during the
combing process, significantly reduce pilling in the
