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. 

'Persephone' is named for the goddess of grain, who was kidnapped by Hades and spends half the year in the Underworld. Her colour, therefore blends a muted golden orange with deep plummy purple.

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.
