If you fancy the softest and finest yarn available, Alpaca is for you. The fibre comes from alpacas, that are similar animals to lamas. However, the coat of the alpaca is a lot thicker and especially the undercoat is very popular in the yarn industry. What makes alpaca fibre so special is the softness and lightness - not to mention that is is 100 % itch free. To top it off, the alpaca yarn is completely free of chemicals, meaning that it is completely unprocessed, only washed, which makes it an allergy friendly yarn choice.
The many characteristics of the alpaca yarn
Alpaca yarn is, without a doubt, a high class yarn of supreme quality. It is comfy with a natural sheen, making it very suitable for knitting and crocheting garments like cardigans, tops, and jumpers or mittens, hats, and scarves, because it is warm but at the same time allowing for heat regulation, so you will not break a sweat. It can also be used for summer garments, since the Alpaca fibre takes after the natural habitat of the alpacas and naturally adjusts to temperatures. This amazing quality gives you endless possibilities. It differs whether people like to work with alpaca fibre or not. Some may feel that it is too difficult to work with - given that it has no memory and gives little or no stability to the shape. This issue is often addressed by adding sheep fibre to the mix in order to add memory to the yarn. Sheep wool, however, has a tendency to itch more than the alpaca, which is something to consider before making your choice of yarn.
Good for everyday use
Without a doubt, the versatility of the alpaca fibre will allow you to create an abundance of projects - both knitted and crocheted - for all the seasons of the year. Our large range of different alpaca yarn will also make it easy for you to create exactly what you have envisioned. Our range has no less than 11 different kinds of alpaca yarns, making it possible to endeavor into many different kinds of projects for both winter and summer, children and adults. If you are contemplating crocheting or knitting a delicate summer top, we recommend that you choose the lighter and airy type of alpaca like Drops Air, which is particularly well suited for this purpose. If you, on the other hand, want to start a winter project, you should go for a heavier version of the alpaca, such as the Mayflower Sky, which is great for jumpers, ponchos, and scarves.

What our customers say about Alpaca yarn
This Alpaca yarn was hard to resist. It was on a very good offer so I bought some of the Light Purple and Light Brown and have added them to my stash. I read someone’s review that suggested this yarn is great for crochet projects. I have a friend who is going to teach me to crochet soon so hopefully I shall start putting this lovely yarn to good use. It feels beautifully soft and the colours are perfect.
This lovely wool is very soft and the colors are beautiful. The stitch definition is very nice too. I have only started and am very excited at how the whole top will come out. Thank you.
This is a very nice yarn to knit with. There has been some wonderful colours. It is a shame that this yarn is being discontinued. I hope that Hobii can find a cheap replacement in the near future.
Lovely wool. Nice to knit with. Feels great in your hands. Also, a lovely rich colour palette. Having a nice yarn to knit with increases the wellbeing knitting gives.
Very soft and lovely to crochet with.. Great prise and fast service. Haven't made anything yet, just did a square, as I have never used alpaca wool before
Absolutely gorgeous soft wool at a bargain price. Knits up beautifully with well defined stitches. Delighted with this yarn.
