New Alpaca yarn!


New British Alpaca yarn Special Offer

Here at Made By Ewe we have been busy ordering new stock for the Summer and this gorgeous alpaca yarn is just in.

The yarn is a blend of 70% Superfine British Alpaca and 30% Bluefaced Leicester wool. This is a well proven blend which offers increased resistance to shedding and pilling and adds loft and substance tot the handle.
The yarn is of course deliciously soft, with a slight haze. It is DK weight and there are 110m on a 50g ball.

There is a good range of neutral colours for classic knits.
Also some brighter summery colours in rose pink, sky blue, moss green and this damson, my favourite!
As a special offer to blog readers, there is a 10% discount on the yarn for a couple of weeks, making it just £5.63 a ball, which is an absolute bargain.  If you are ordering from the website, enter code ALP10 at the checkout.  I you pop into the shop, I will apply it at the till.Happy Knitting!

About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
