Here it is!  This is a blend of Falkland Islands Corriedale/Merino pure white wool with 20% British alpaca, added to smooth the handle even more, slightly reduce the bulk of a woollen spun yarn and to add the natural colours.  We are starting with 4-ply and DK and in five shades: pure White, Silver, Pewter, Spice and Nutmeg.

The yarn is priced between our Blacker Classic  (£4) and Blacker Swan (£8.50) at an attractive £6.50 per 50g ball.  We are sending it out to magazines and designers at present and it will soon be available at www.blackeryarns.co.uk as well ...

We have more plans!  But they are not quite ready yet ...

Meanwhile, we hope these three ranges will enable people to taste British yarns at their best in affordable, stylish and luxury formats and will be complementary to our more specialist Breeds and Blends ranges.  If Elegance proves as popular as Classic and Blacker Swan we will probably be persuaded to add a few dyed colours, but meanwhile it will work very well with the increasing range of Hebridean/Mohair and Gotland dyed colours as the yarns are designed to work to the same gauge and tension.
