Soft Alpaca is an exquisite yarn of an exclusive grade. It’s spun from 100% pure alpaca and has all the best qualities of superb alpaca fibers. 

The alpaca is known all around the world for its soft, warm, and slightly curly fur. The animals’ furs have adapted to the extreme, constantly changing weather conditions in South America with both sun, heat, wind, and bitter cold. Warm when it’s cold and cool and airy when the sun is scorching. That’s what makes these fibers perfect all year round. 

The alpaca fibers are hollow, actually like super thin tubes full of air, which grants them excellent insulating properties that are up to eight times warmer than wool from sheep. That’s why you can keep warm with a very thin and light knit. When the fine, natural fibers are spun into our Soft Alpaca, the result is a lovely yarn quality that’s very durable and amazingly soft against your skin. 

Soft Alpaca has a natural weight that makes the fabric drape beautifully whether it’s knit or crocheted. For the same reason, it’s great for shawls, fabulous sweaters, and super soft accessories of all kinds. Alpaca does not contain lanolin, so if you’re, e.g., allergic to sheep’s wool, alpaca is a nice, natural alternative.

Colors no. 2 and 42 are completely natural shades of alpaca that haven’t been dyed.

Super nice yarn- great quality!! For all the beginners out there- this is a small ball of yarn, not a regular sized one. I made the mistake of not double checking but I am still really happy with it! I keep buying it because of its great quality!


Holly

So soft and easy to use. I made a cardigan in the deep green with this and it was fantastic to knit to. It has a lovely haze to it, but as a result it does bobble a fair bit. Not more than expected and is lovely to wear.


Carolin

I’ve used it to knit the Malene poncho — once in yellow for a friend and now I’m making another one on dark grey for myself. It’s so soft, perfect for a cosy autumn wrap.


Sally Watts

Lovely soft wool, very fine and nice to work with. Excellent service, too. Will definitely buy again.


Lydia

So soft and lovely to work with.
It's nice to wear and not itchy at all.
