Alba is the brainchild of UK designer Jody Long, who drew on his own heritage as well as the beauty of his adopted home, Spain, in creating this rustic yet luxuriously soft yarn. Each shade is dappled subtly contrasting flecks, which add dimension to the finished fabric, without overshadowing textural stitches or detracting from colourwork. Plus, Alba comes in epic 100g / 350m balls -- 4 will make a medium-sized adult sweater!
Alba knits up into a remarkably soft, light and drapey fabric, which blooms beautifully with wear.
