What happens when you take the divine Sumptuous and make it even better? You get Sumptuous Extra Refined! Tweaked ever so slightly to be even better than it was! Sumptuous is a wonderful soft and full yarn made from 100% NZ fine micron wool. A delightful yarn for knitting and crochet. With a gentle blend of polwarth and alpaca, the yarn really is a sight to behold. Polwarth is the merino’s closest cousin, sharing all the properties we know and love, but with more shine, less shrinkage and better drape.
Sumptuous has a magic puff factor that allows it to gauge across many needles and patterns, so you can have a play with anything from DK to worsted, 4 mm to 7 mm. Knit fine for a rich full finish, or knit on larger points for a flowing soft drape.
Sumptuous was designed with many applications in mind, delicate small baby pieces, large flowing draping garments, thick delicious throws and blankets, super soft and low irritant hats, squishy mitts and cuddly jumpers. This fibre blend is incredible to work with in versatility and knitting pleasure.
We also have the original Sumptuous in its vibrant shades, mix and match between the two!
