Isager Eco Soft
Isager Eco Soft is a soft, fluffy blend of alpaca and cotton in a gorgeous range of undyed natural shades. Isager Eco Soft has a clever construction of a tube of organic pima cotton with alpaca fibre blown through.
Because of the construction, the yarn offers amazing meterage for the gauge meaning this yarn offers excellent value. The fluffy effect of Isager Eco Soft makes it a great alternative for patterns that strand a silk mohair with a DK yarn (of course we'd recommend a swatch to check your gauge and that you're happy with fabric).
Isager recommend using a 5.5mm - 6.00mm needle for a gauge of 15-16st per 10cm but this is a very flexible yarn and will work at anything from an aran weight gauge of 18st per 10cm for a denser but light fabric, up to a chunky weight gauge of 14st per 10cm for a looser, airy effect. We, as always, would recommend you make a swatch and measure your gauge after soaking and drying the swatch.
The shades are all undyed and offer a beautiful natural palette.
