Tekapo comes in beautiful solids and coordinating variegates.

The yarn is named after the beautiful Lake Tekapo, just 90 minutes south west of Ashburton. The lake, ringed by snowcapped Southern Alps and glaciers is famous for its bright turquoise colour caused by its suspended glacial dust. In 1857 one of the first sheep stations in the New Zealand was established on its shore.
