This pack contains all the Alice Starmore Hebridean 2 Ply yarn required to make the Otter from Glamourie in your chosen length, colourway and size. You will require a copy of GLAMOURIE for the pattern instructions, the Glamourie book is available for purchase here.


The otter costume’s studded ridges become a striking feature at the neck, cuffs and hem of the design. The lightly shaped body and sleeves are worked in Stocking Stitch which serves as a counterpoint to the decorative ridges both visually and in terms of time and ease of knitting. The Heath colourway, shown in the cropped version, is taken directly from the costume and represents the beauty of the vast sweeps of heather and cotton grass that grace the Lewis moor in summer; the Moss colourway, shown in the classic version, is based on the rich green grasses and golden mosses that grow beside the waters of the bogs and lochs.

When the UK lockdown was announced on Monday 23rd of March we took the strong advice of health and scientific experts and made the decision to pause orders and deliveries from the Virtual Yarns website. However safe we can make our workplace, we cannot send packages without involving delivery workers both here and at the point of destination. At this key time we need to play our part in reducing physical contact and closing temporarily is the most responsible way to achieve that. When circumstances allow we will re-open for orders.
