Outlaw Yarn Bohemia Light 5ply
Deliciously soft and silky, Bohemia Light is the perfect blend of luxury fibres. Combining the extreme softness and warmth of Possum and Alpaca with the extra-long staple and lustre of Polwarth.
The carefully chosen colours with a Victoriana theme, including a generous collection of neutrals to contrast with vibrant brights and moody darks. The 50g ball size will appeal to those who enjoy colour work. Technically a sport/5ply weight, the tighter Bohemia Sport is knitted the more lush the fabric becomes. Suitable for a range of needle sizes and gauges.
The Polwarth provides excellent stitch definition, stitch 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.
