About This Yarn An unashamedly feminine yarn, this Alpaca blend knits into a beautifully soft fabric with a luxurious drape. Sirdar has honoured the natural, animal fibres in Saltaire by naming the shades to celebrate home-grown flora and fauna.
What's it like to work with? Saltaire is a real pleasure to knit. The yarn runs gently through the fingers and slides over needles while the soft natural alpaca fibres allow the stitches to plump-out, giving an all-over evenness and slight haze to your finished fabric.
What is it best for? The knitwear equivalent of a classic white shirt or trench, the fluid drape of Sirdar Saltaire elegantly flatters the female form, making it ideal for subtle stitch details and softly structured shapes you’ll want to wear for forever.
