Walcot Yarns

Opus

  • NEW COLOURS NOW IN! (Castlerock, Ink, Summer Storm, Plum, Cove)

    Opus was developed by the amazing Carmen Schmidt - expert owner of A Yarn Story ,to address the need for a yarn which is both soft & buttery and also a workhorse, so you know this will be a good 'un!

    Opus is super lush."Buttery" is the perfect adjective for this yarn, which masquerades as a fine, cool cashmere but is in fact a hardy blend of merino and baby alpaca. It's technically a Fingering/4-Ply weight, but also knits up perfectly as a Sport weight since it's so lofty.

    We carry the entire palette because we love it!  The alpaca gives it a little halo, and the twist is wonderful for stitch definition.  You won't regret adding this one to your stash!
