The color possibilities that acrylic offers encounter the softest alpaca yarn creating Wheel of Alpaca, the most luxurious of our acrylic cake yarns. 

Wheel of Alpaca is made out of 80% acrylic combined with 20% of alpaca. This blend will make acrylic lovers fall in love, and will definitely convert those who are not. 

The color transitions are gradients, creating a beautiful ombré effect that ranges from earth and softer shades to bright and more intense colors. 

If our other gradient cakes seemed a bit tricky to work with, this beautiful yarn is thicker and beginner-friendly as you can either use 3.5 mm (US 4) knitting needles or a 4.5 mm (US 7) crochet hook to start crafting. Wheel of Alpaca is 940 m (1028 yds) of super soft fluffiness and will give you many hours of knitting and crochet coziness. One cake will be enough to knit or crochet scarves and shawls. Being so soft, Wheel of Alpaca can be used to craft any type of garment, as well as cozy blankets. Moreover, it will be a great alternative for people allergic to sheep's wool. 

The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much handier to find the beginning of your skein. 

Wheel of Alpaca is really the thicker gradient cake we have all been waiting for.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

Made the In-Lines Alpaca-Shawl with one cake and it came out really nicely, the colour change is so subtle as it changes one strand at a time which meant I didn't have to mess around supervising colour changes. I machine washed my finished shawl and the only problem I had was that it sheds a lot in the washing machine.

I made the German Shells shawl with Wheel of Alpaca. It's beautiful. The yarn is soft and will be incredibly warm to wear in autumn and winter. I used colour 7. I have more colours in the stash. Looking forward to using it again


Love this yarn. Made Winter Shells kids poncho, easy crochet hat and and nice kids size scarf from one cake of colour 8. Very soft and easy to work yarn. Have one more cake in my stash. Can't wait to make something for myself.


I absolutely love this yarn, the colours are amazing, I’ve just completed a double bed throw and it looks spectacular. The yarn is really easy to crochet with and is super soft.


Gorgeous yarn. The colour transition is lovely. One cake made a lovely warm shawl. Easy to crochet with despite splitting occasionally. Will definitely use again.
