Item details

This yarn pack contains 5 mini-skeins of my handspun yarn - 4 of alpaca and BFL and one of tailspun Gotland. The alpaca fibre came from a local friend's alpaca and I blended it with some Blue Faced Leicester for added strength and lustre. I carded the fibre, handspun and plied it for strength and balance, then finally gently washed it to "set" the yarn. Accompanying the alpaca and BFL is a mini-skein of gorgeous tailspun Gotland - one of my favourite fibres - perfect for adding some added textural interest to your work. Totalling 182g, this yarn pack contains:

4 skeins of alpaca and BFL:
1 x 44g skein
1 x 35g skein
1 x 40g skein
1 x 63g skein
and one luscious 37g skein of tailspun Gotland

If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me - I'm always happy to chat about yarn :)

For most items, I use Royal Mail second class postage within the UK and the closest equivalent for other countries. Items are usually posted without tracking but I always obtain a proof of posting. If you would like any item sent with tracking or signed-for insurance, please let me know and I will be happy to arrange this for the extra fee, as charged by Royal Mail.

I aim to post orders within 1-2 days and I always send a confirmation note to let you know that it has been posted.

Your item should arrive within a couple of days of posting but please allow up to 15 working days as I can't report an item as missing with Royal Mail until then. If it remains missing after this time I will do my best to replace your order or will offer you a refund.

If you are local to me (near Bristol), you are welcome to collect your order if you like, either from my studio or from any of the local events I will be attending. Use voucher code LOCALCOLLECT to remove the postage charge from your order. I will message you to let you know when it is available and to arrange a mutually suitable time for collection. You can see all the local events I will be attending by following me on Facebook @bigskytextiles
