Deliciously soft and silky, Bohemia is the perfect blend of luxury fibres. Bohemia Worsted has the same excellent properties as Bohemia Sport - there's just more of it to love! This worsted weight (sometimes called 10ply) yarn will knit up fast for larger garments and will have all the softness and drape you need for accessories.
Inspired by leading creatives of the mid to late 19th century, including the artists known as the Pre-Raphaelites, the colour palette is grown-up, sophistication with flashes of daring.
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.
This yarn has the same luxury base as Bohemia Worsted, except with black alpaca instead of white for intense, brooding colour!
