BUOY M5 – Light grey

70% Baby Alpaca 23%PA 7% Wool

The BUOY M5 takes it's name from the Maritime Weather station off the South East Coast of Ireland. This special edition of hand knit styles are all named in honour of these traditional seafaring links. While the name reference is whimsical there is nothing whimsical in the technical making. This Bobble stitch can only be accomplished with one pair of dextrous hands and 2 needles, patience and a skill that cannot be imitated by machine. As a time consuming detail the Bobble stitch was traditionally only seen as a flourish in a cabled pattern. Lucy wanted to design a thoroughly modern knit where an abundance of the bobble would yield a rich, repeating texture. At the same time she searched for a yarn that was large enough to make the bobble theatrical, yet really light and soft. Sourcing the world's best yarns she found the ideal : Baby Alpaca direct from it's source in Peru. This yarn is not twisted in the traditional way. Instead the Baby Alpaca fibres are air-jet injected inside a gauze tube. The result is light in feel ( sweater weighing less than 500g) yet dramatic in volume & look.
