Walcot Yarns' first blend, Opus, is a lush spin of Falkland Merino and Baby Alpaca. Opus is a lofty Sport weight yarn perfect for garments and a winner for luscious accessories too. A super soft handle, more similar to cashmere than your typical merino/alpaca blend, this is both a luxurious and hard wearing yarn.

In our featured images Lisa is wearing the Koro Koro Shawl, knit using two skeins each of Castlerock and Goldenrod and the Narbeth Cowl, using one skein each of Splashed White and Charcoal.

Check out our short video below to see Joy's "Boxed and Cabled" cardigan too.
