Bohemia Gothic - Byron
The same luxurious blend of 45% Polwarth / 45% Alpaca / 10% Possum created with black alpaca instead of white.
Inspired by Victorian Gothic novels and novelists, Bohemia Gothic is the perfect blend of dark and moody with colour to die for.
This light worsted weight (sometimes called 10ply) yarn will knit up fast for larger garments and will have all the softness and drape you need for accessories.
Deliciously soft and silky, Bohemia is a stunning blend of luxury fibres. Combining the extreme softness and warmth of Possum and Alpaca with the extra long staple and lustre of Polwarth. The Polwarth provides stitch definition, memory and sheen, the Alpaca gives a silky drape and the Possum content is perfectly balanced to bring a subtle marl and soft halo to the knitted yarn. Possum has similar qualities to mink. The fibres are hollow, light, non-itchy, extremely warm and (unlike angora) Possum is pill resistant. Alpaca is an extraordinarily fine fibre with microscopic air pockets creating unique thermal properties. It’s durable, non-flammable and non-itchy containing no lanolin with a smooth cell structure.
