Item details

Handspun blend of 40% Alpaca,40% Merino and 20% Silk - 110 grams - blend of shades of purple, plum and mauve .

Spun as a single (ie. not plied, just single strand) then washed and weighted to set the twist. Approximately 3-4ply - 318 yards/291 metres.

Please note that I photograph all my yarn to reflect the colours as accurately as I can (if there is any slight discrepancy I will note this in the description) but, however good my photographs are, the colours can appear different on other computer screens. I will always do my best but I am at the mercy of your computer when viewing these photographs!

I am happy to ship all items worldwide. The prices I have quoted for shipping one or multiple items will cover all shipping costs. Because of the way in which Etsy charges for each extra item, in some cases, the shipping will be overpaid and I always refund an overpayment once I have sent the item(s) to you.

Shipping within the UK will be via Royal Mail 1st class post and at the appropriate rate for the value of the items you have purchased in order that the parcel has adequate insurance to cover it's value. Higher value items will be sent via either "Signed For 1st Class" or "Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1pm Next Day". I will notify in a listing if the item is for a signed delivery. If a signed delivery is not suitable for you I will send by ordinary post but this will be at your own risk.

Shipping overseas ie. outside the UK, will be via normal international postage rates unless, as per postage within the UK, an item has a higher value, when it will be sent via a suitably insured method unless you state otherwise and accept the associated risks.

I always obtain a proof of posting but this sometimes only covers a package to the UK border and does not provide very much in the way of insurance.

Please contact me if you require special shipping rates on any item not currently showing same – I will be happy to make a custom listing of that item for you.


Payment for all orders is under the control of Etsy and is made via electronic payment.

Processing time - Most of my listings are ready for shipping within 24-48 hours but please check the details – I will clearly mark any items that need to be ordered and show an approximate time frame to process that order. Please bear in mind that there is only me making all these so special orders can take a while!
