CaMaRose – Snefnug (snowflake)
An extra fluffy and extra squishy aran made of 55% alpaca, 35% cotton and 10% wool. This yarn works well at a variety of gauges, go for a loose gauge to create something airy and light or tighter for the ultra-fluff factor.
The core of Snefnug is made of a cotton chainette blended with fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool. The result is a very strong yet very light yarn which knits up in a beautifully soft and airy fabric. A great option for those oversized chunky knits.
CaMaRose pride themselves on working with manufactures who have high ethical and sustainable business practices as well as putting great importance on animal welfare. Snefnug is spun in a family-owned mill in Italy.
