Hobbii Alpaca Silk is an extraordinarily fabulous yarn from Peru. It consists of 70% alpaca and 30% silk, a match made in heaven, if you ask us.

The silky-smooth silk adds a slightly shiny look to the yarn and combined with the long, warm alpaca-fibers, it makes the yarn extra durable. Silk Alpaca is a dream to wear and it’s perfect for warm and soft knitting for all kinds of clothing such as shawls, hats and other accessories. This lightweight yarn adds a beautiful drapable finish to any project. You can also combine the yarn with other yarns by adding e.g. a thread of Kid Silk into your work thus making your work extra lightweight.

Alpaca Silk is a fabulous luxury on your needles, so enjoy!

NB! As you may know from many other types of textiles, yarn may contain excess color. The difference is that we don’t sit and pull the newly purchased shirts and pillow cases through our hands for hours on end the same way we do with our craftwork. The repeated rubbing from working with the yarn can, unfortunately, result in color transfering from some darker colors and black. But that doesn’t mean that you can knit a striped sweater. 

Hobbii Alpaca Silk is exclusively dyed with colors and fixatives from European brands that follow the rules and regulations set by the EU. Because EU approved agents are used exclusively to dye the yarn, it can be hard to achieve a good color fastness in fabrics like silk. Therefore, we recommend that you hand wash Alpaca Silk separately.

A beautiful yarn, it’s wonderfully soft and warm - I’m so disappointed it has been discontinued- I would definitely have be using it for jumpers, scarfs, shawls and pretty much anything else to give a luxurious feel and warmth without bulk.


Radka

This yarn is absolutely beautiful with a luxurious sheen and drape. Shame it is being discontinued! It would be my go to for garments and shawls due to the heavy drapyness and softness next to skin.


Marzenka

Feels so luxurious, delightful yarn to work with. Washes and blocks really well. Perfect choice for scarves and jumpers.


Chloe

My friend gifted me lots of yarn from hobbi. I’m yet to use this. However feels and looks great. Only reason for the 3* is because I’m yet to use it.
