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. 

Astraea was the Greek goddess of the innocence and purity. The colour is the natural, undyed white yarn.

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.
