Ullcentrum Alvar 3-Ply Worsted 100g


Stock: 10

Ullcentrum's yarns are made with 100% Swedish wool that would otherwise be burnt or thrown away as waste. Swedish wool is renowned for its strength and Ullcentrum spins only the cleanest, softest fleeces to make these special yarns. This is a soft, rustic yarn which will improve further after washing, giving a characterful, soft, firm fabric, strong enough to use for any kind of project. Perfect sweater yarn. May contain a little vegetable matter, which is easily removed when knitting.

Alvar is a special blend of fibres and colours, spun to give a tweedy effect. The name of the wool is inspired by the barren limestone plain, Alvaret, for which Öland is known.

Please note that the Alvar yarn is slightly thicker than standard Ullcentrum 3-Ply and may not therefore combine well if used in the same project.
