Caia Baby Alpaca – Hespera
Fine and soft with a delightful little halo, Caia is a yarn with gorgeous drape and gloss. The pure baby alpaca fibre is sourced from a single flock in Somerset, just south of Bristol, and is spun in the UK. It's then hand-dyed in deep, rich colours with shades that flow into each other.
Hespera was one of the Hesperides – Greek nymphs of the golden light of evening. The colour is a warm buttery yellow, tending towards apricot.
The yarn is a very light 4-ply / fingering weight, worsted-spun with low twist for softness and drape. It's utterly perfect for warm, soft shawls and elegant, flowing garments where little structure is needed.
