A beautiful new addition to the Kate Davies Designs range, Ard Thir is an aran-weight blend of 60% Peruvian highland wool and 40% Alpaca.
Ard Thir's worsted spinning and carefully blended fibers lend it a wonderfully soft and squishy hand. It?s a round, smooth and highly versatile yarn that knits up into a wonderfully warm and even fabric. Ard Thir has been produced in one highland landscape (Peru) and inspired by another (Scotland).
The Scottish winter landscape is often thought to be drained of color, but if you look carefully, you'll discover a mix of many interesting shades: from the deepening russet tones of bracken-covered hillsides to the luminous hues of lichen hanging from bare branches; from the glancing orange glow of sunlight across high rocky peaks to the extraordinarily rich color of a sea loch under a leaden February sky. Each of Kate's ten shades is a subtle, muted marl; each possesses its own depth and tonal variety; some can be combined into intriguing gradients, and all work together harmoniously as a range.
