Alpaca - Ball Hank & Skein Catalogue:

Alpaca

Alpaca

Alpaca fleece is a lustrous and silky natural fiber. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and bears no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. Without lanolin, it does not repel water. It is also soft and luxurious. In physical structure, Alpaca fibre is somewhat akin to hair, being very glossy. The preparing, carding, spinning, weaving and finishing process of Alpaca is very similar to the process used for wool. A quality, luxurious yarn to knit.

Alpaca wool is one of the finest fibres available it is incredibly soft, light and recognised for its luxurious feel and lustrous qualities. It is particularly durable, absorbent and flexible. An absolute pleasure to work with. It is much warmer than other wools in cold weather and most remarkably, it naturally responds to the temperature as the temperature drops, your Alpaca knitwear will feel even warmer. Conversely it is light and cool in the summer. Soft luxury natural fibres, attention to detail and commitment to quality are the features that characterise this beautiful Peruvian range of knitwear and yarns. The combined ancient Peruvian hand finishing magic touch and modern technology have produced a yarn ready for you to create that something special for you or to give to someone dear.

We currently only stock yarns with the yarn weight DK.
