Sumptuous Yarn – 100% NZ Polwarth + Alpaca Yarn (3 Light Worsted – Dk)

Sumptuous by the Woven Co is a plush yarn with soft haze, made from gently blending NZ Polwarth wool with a touch of luxurious NZ Alpaca fibre.  It is a wonderful soft and full yarn that is a dream to craft with and even the most sensitive can enjoy it’s soft cosy feel.

Polwarth is the Merino’s closest cousin, sharing all the properties we know and love, but with more shine, less shrinkage and better drape (you can read more about the fibre here)

Sumptuous is made with love, all fibre has been carefully sourced from local farms, gently processed without harsh chemicals, refined and then spun into this rich snuggly yarn… all within the South Island of NZ.

Sumptuous is a heavenly yarn with the magic puff factor, which allows her use across many patterns and needle sizes.

    Amazing wool to knit with, so easy to use. And so soft and wearable – no itching. I have really sensitive skin and love wearing this particular wool in all seasons!

    Thank you love, and I very privileged to have you as a customer

    Sumptuous is my go-to you yarn for pretty much everything I knit now; from baby jackets to men’s jumpers. It is soft, easy to work with and the finished product always delights. I have a ‘sumptuous’ drawer in my yarn stash so that I’ve always got some on hand. Loving the new colours too!

    I’ve knitted two ponchos in this beautiful yarn. I don’t really need two ponchos but I just couldn’t stop knitting and they are so light but warm to wear.

    I started using sumptuous for a baby blanket (I’ve now done two). Then I did the knit-along throw. Now I have knitted two more throws and I’m onto a third. I love using sumptuous. It is such a light, soft yarn to both use and snuggle into, even whilst knitting with it. There is a lovely sheen to the wool as well which leaves the finished product looking and feeling so luxurious. I wholeheartedly recommend this yarn.

  9. Roz Olsen (verified owner)

    Sumptuous is the most wonderful yarn, I have it in several colours and it is a delight to knit. I have knitted several baby blankets which are admired by many.

    I have been using this for hats. I made one for myself and then all the family have started asking for them because the wool is so lovely to wear. Soft and warm and not scratchy at all. Love it
