Walcot Yarns' first blend, Opus, is a lush spin of Falkland merino and baby alpaca. The lofty 4-ply is perfect for garments and accessories and has a super-soft handle, more similar to cashmere than your typical merino/alpaca blend – it is truly a luxurious and hardwearing yarn.

I used black Opus as the base for a Painting Honeycombs shawl by Westknits. It was such a delight to use and perfect for that project.
I love WY Opus. It’s super soft and squishy and knits up beautifully. Very happy with my purchase. I bought Opus to knit the SHIFTIGAN by drea renee knits
It's my first time using this yarn and it is a delight to knit with. It's got a good yardage per skein and is very soft.
A gorgeous yarn, soft and great stitch definition
Absolutely love this yarn I have used It a number of times to make garments and it stands up so well to daily wear. The choice of colours is outstanding and I cannot get over how soft it is every time I use it!!
