We created this blend trying to marry our favourite fibres to spin and knit, and the best local breeders that have been supplying us so far. We chose mohair and alpaca from eastern Liguria hills and wool from the mountains around Verona.

This blend comes both in 2 ply shiny and bouncy fingering weight millspun yarn and a squishy, smooth, single ply handspun yarn, both are hand dyed in semisolid colors in our studio in Genoa.
