Fyberspates – Tarma Aran


A gorgeous Aran weight hand-dyed in the UK by Fyberspates.  Made of 60% highland wool and 40% alpaca, Tarma Aran is both soft and springy. It doesn’t have as much drape as you’d expect from an alpaca base. On the contrary its twist and high wool content gives it a lot bounce and structure.  A great option for textured projects which require a good stitch definition. Its sophisticated colour range includes bright semi-solids and light variegated. 

Fyberspates is a UK based yarn company best known for their collaboration with indie designers like Rachel Coopey and Carol Feller. Their equal attention to colours and texture is paramount to their approach of knitting . This results in yarn that stands out both for their unusual fibre blends and incredible colour palette.

As with all hand-dyed yarns colour shades can vary within and between dye lots, this is what makes each skein uniquely beautiful.  Please be sure to order enough yarn to complete your project to reduce the chance of differences between your skeins.  To ensure random colour distribution, work from two skeins at once, alternating every few rows.

At YAK we try to ensure that our photos represent colours as accurately as possible, but please be aware that these can vary depending on your computer monitor settings.
