We absolutely adore Sabriand get rave reviews from our customers about this yarn, so it was a no brainer for us to fly over Sabri II when it was released this year.
Sabri II is a sublime blend of Organic Cotton with natural Baby Alpaca in a worsted weight (Aran weight) chainette.
The 7 neutral shades on grey bases are the result of a mélange of Organic Cotton and the very rare natural black of the alpaca producing a natural warmth of tone which will suit almost any complexion, and can be blended together into beautiful gradients.
Sabri garments have wonderful stitch definition as well as drape, which is usually difficult to achieve with a worsted weight yarn.
85% organic cotton
15% organic baby alpaca

We are so so proud to be the UK stockist for Illimani Yarns. We know you'll LOVE their gorgeous yarns as much as we do.
After many years in the fashion business importing ready-to-wear collection of alpaca and llama wool apparel hand-made by artisans in Bolivia, Illimani decided it is time to focus on the yarn. By applying all their experience on knits and fine wools to carefully select the very best natural yarns in the world at unbeatable prices.
Illimani has worked with thousands of artisans in Bolivia and Peru, many of which have mastered the art of knitting and crocheting. Our mission is to provide the materials and the inspiration to our customers to help them create their own artisanal textiles.
Illimani work along with international aid organisations to support artisans in the Bolivian and Peruvian Andes commercialize their products in the North American markets.
