Penny Hill – hankknitwear

This is the most beautiful quality yarn.

I solely use Australian Alpaca Yarn in the production of my kids knitwear label and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The 4 ply yarn is perfectly spun to use on my knitting machine and the 8 ply is my go-to for all my hand knit items.

The feedback from my customers is always positive.

I choose Australian Alpaca Yarn for the impeccable quality, the softness and the beautiful colour palate.
