As a lover of tweed yarns I'm delighted that Andy  has added some marled alpaca yarns. Whilst not true tweeds they have enough contrast and variegation to please me. I was very keen to overdye some samples of this yarn. The spun yarns incorporate threads of natural black, fawn and brown alpaca with the cream.They are quite interesting as overdyed, variegated colourways but I personally prefer them in semi solid colourways.They are available in their natural undyed colours or hand dyed. You can see how nicely they knit up undyed here.

On the weaving front I have a couple of colourful sofa throws to finish and the last of these red scarves to complete.

Those marls do look lovely when overdyed!
