Opus is Walcot Yarns first yarn. As knitters themselves, they wanted to create a yarn that knitters and crocheters would fall in love with. Something soft yet strong enough to last the test of time.
A blend of Falkland Merino and Baby Alpaca makes Opus a lofty sport weight yarn perfect for garments and accessories. A super-soft handle, more similar to cashmere than your typical merino/alpaca blend, Opus is both a luxurious and hardwearing yarn.
It is available in 15 shades, including three undyed shades. Thirteen shades of Opus are dyed on the natural grey base giving the colours a rich smokey effect.
We also stock Opus in mini skeins in eight popular colours, perfect companions to the larger skeins for colourwork and stripes.
