An unashamedly feminine yarn, this Alpaca blend knits into a beautifully soft fabric with a luxurious drape. Sirdar have honoured the natural, animal fibres in Saltaire by naming their shades to celebrate their home-grown flora and fauna.
Saltaire is a real pleasure to knit. The yarn runs gently through the fingers and slides over needles while the soft natural alpaca fibres allow the stitches to plump-out, giving an all-over evenness and slight haze to your finished fabric.
The knitwear equivalent of a classic white shirt or trench, the fluid drape of Sirdar Saltaire elegantly flatters the female form, making it ideal for subtle stitch details and softly structured shapes you’ll want to wear for forever.
