Caia Baby Alpaca – Andromeda
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.
Andromeda was princess who was condemned to be eaten by a sea monster. The colour is rich, dark blue – very slightly more towards green than 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.
