Green ripples (2285)
A very fine fleece called for a fine yarn to be spun. The natural fleece colour is contrasted with different shades of green also on the alpaca yarn. There is plenty of interesting movement in this piece of work.
Lustrous simplicity (2287)
To make this piece a very fine, silky, suri alpaca yarn was spun from a great fleece. It’s a generous wrap or a scarf. The relatively simple knitting stitch pattern allows the light to fall on the garment and the different textures capture the lustre.
Lustrous suri alpaca (2282)
Heavier yarns have their place too. The hand spun suri alpaca yarn in this piece is left in its natural colour. The natural lustre of suri alpaca is very obvious in the non-lacy panels of the work.
Suri alpaca five ways (2288)
This is a truly versatile garment! The yarn is hand spun suri alpaca left as its natural colour. Wear it as a vest, a scarf, even a bit of both if worn under a coat with the fronts tied as a scarf.
A smattering of yellow (2291)
This generous wrap is made from a pure, naturally-coloured suri alpaca fleece with sea silk insertions. A domino style pattern was used.
Poncho or scarf? (2273) Australians are indeed fortunate. Thanks to a committed group of breeders there is a high-quality alpaca yarn made from Australian alpaca on the market. I’ve used this yarn to create a versatile garment. Wear it in two ways, as a poncho like top, or as a scarf.
Soft in colour and soft to touch (2270)
Take a beautiful alpaca, cashmere and silk yarn and dye it naturally and then knit it up in a lace stitch and you have a very sensuous scarf or wrap.
Suri in a spin (2294)
A lovely, lustrous, hand spun suri alpaca scarf. It would also serve as a narrow stole around the shoulders. The pattern is an Estonian ‘lace’ stitch pattern. The yarn is the natural colour of the fleece.
Softly red (2278)
This wrap (also a scarf) is made from a beautiful suri alpaca/fine merino commercial yarn, which unfortunately is no longer produced. As I was given a bit of advance warning I have been able to source some of the last available balls to add to my stock. The yarn is beautifully soft.
Waves of blue (2295)
This is a medium weight hand spun piece of work. The pattern used references ocean waves – the blue yarn is a merino/alpaca/silk blend and the suri alpaca yarn suggests the pristine sand on a clear sunny day.
The Greens of Spring (2269)
This is a crescent shaped wrap (that also can be a scarf) made of quality commercial yarns. The composition of the yarns is a mix of suri alpaca, mohair and silk. The golden yarn is made from sea silk.
This piece of work is a large square with a lace border added. The small nupps (bumps) in the wrap are a feature seen in Estonian knitting. The yarn is alpaca, cashmere and silk and this large piece can be a wrap or a scarf. The whole work only weights 97 grams.
A touch of glitter (2277) All the yarns in this piece of work are quality commercial yarns. The various yarns contain suri alpaca and merino or mohair and silk (with a touch of ‘glitter’ in one yarn).
Soft and cuddly (2280)
A magical blend of alpaca, cashmere and silk in a lace weight yarn was used to create this large wrap or luxurious scarf. Two lace panels feature at either end and a very simple lace insertion helps to break up the stocking stitch centre.
Parasols and nupps (2297)
Parasols and nupps make up the end panels of lace and another simple lace “ladder” features through the middle section of this generous wrap or luxurious scarf. An alpaca, cashmere and silk yarn makes it something special.
Soft grey luxury (2301) Super soft, alpaca, cashmere and silk yarn is knitted up in a textured lace pattern. Warm, soft and “squishy”. The piece can be worn as a scarf or a warp and is lightweight.
Light As Air (2356)
A light-as-air, one-ply alpaca and silk large wrap or scarf. It weighs in under 40 grams, is almost 2 metres long, and is around 80 centimetres wide
Pink and pink (2304)
A simple scarf in warm antique pink with deeper pink “trim”. The yarn is a super soft suri alpaca/fine merino mix.
Blue lace wrap or scarf (2323)
This scarf or wrap is knitted from a hand dyed, alpaca, cashmere and silk yarn using a modified lace stitch.
Generous suri and merino wrap (2369)
This is a large, generous suri alpaca and merino wrap. It was made from a high quality yarn, which (unfortunately) is no longer available. The lace pattern comes from Eastern Europe.
Simple suri (2307)
A very simple lace pattern but the highlight of this piece (generous scarf or simple wrap) is the fine, lustrous hand spun suri alpaca yarn.
Study in cool grey (2315)
While this is basically a scarf, which is a study in cool greys, it could be worn as a stole or small wrap. The yarn is a 95% hand spun suri alpaca. The colours come from blending grey suri fleeces into the garment.
