Hibiscus is a combination of medium strength cheerful yellow, orange and rockmelon colours with splashes of coral and black. This yarn is soft and multi coloured with slub spinning features which when knitted appear on the surface of the fabric. The yarn varies between a lofty look and a tighter twist. Each skein is unique. The fibre used in this yarn is a soft Australian alpaca and is spun in our family run fibre mill, Sunshine Coast, Australia.
The alpaca fibre is sourced from alpaca farms along the Eastern seaboard of Australia. The fibre is dyed in the fleece and then processed and spun to create interesting colourways.
Designed to be used in scarves, cowls and shawls this bulky weight yarn is quick to knit or crochet. Some colours in the range have been designed to create spectacular visual effects when knitted and others have gradual changes.
Designer Tip: whip up a neck cowl for a quick handmade gift.
