Outlaw Yarn Bohemia Light 5ply

$16.00

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.
