Imagine a balmy summer's evening on the beach: cool breeze caressing your skin, warm sand squeaking between your toes, waves swooshing against the shore, and the spinifex covered sand dunes that separate your ideal from the mundane...
Spinifex is perfect for your next warm weather project, keeping you cool during the hot summer days, and warm during the cooler nights.
The baby alpaca in this yarn lends softness and a little warmth, while the silk and linen provide a coolness suitable for summer wear. The alpaca and silk take up the dye beautifully but the linen does not, lending a soft rustic look to this yarn. The linen will soften with washing and use. None of the fibres have any elasticity, so expect pure drape, perfect for shawls and oversize tops.
