Alpaca Blaze is soft as butter. A lovely mix with fine alpaca fibers that don’t itch. It works amazingly as a second strand in your projects, where it’ll give your craftsmanship volume without making it heavy. Imagine being able to knit a light, fluffy cloud into a blouse. If you want to knit a sweater on large needles, you can easily combine two or more strands of Alpaca Blaze. You could, e.g., mix colors in shades that are close to each other for a beautiful mélange look or smooth transitions by changing one strand at a time. The lovely mixture of fine alpaca fibers yields incredibly light and airy results that’re hard to find with other yarn types. 

Alternatively, Alpaca Blaze is also great when paired with a thin wool or alpaca, if you want your projects to have a fluffy glow.

If you want the light and fluffy volume that you’ll find in other yarns like our very popular Diablo, but want to avoid mohair altogether, then Alpaca Blaze is a great substitute. It doesn’t shed like a mohair yarn and is an affordable alternative to, e.g., a kid silk. 

Need inspiration for a project? Consider taking a look at our Diablo patterns. The knitting tension is the same for the two yarns, so you can use the same patterns without worry.

I have been working up swatches of alpaca blaze with Dream Colour and the fabric created is so soft, The drape is also lovely. These swatches have also been very easy to frog which surprised me. Can't wait to find a few patterns to use this combination with. I have purchased quite a few of the alpaca blaze colours and they are true to the website photos.

I have also used Alpaca Blaze with Winter Glow Solid for a sweater and the drape is wonderful. It is certainly a great yarn to bring a sense of luxury to your knitting.

I don't know how many of the colors I have at this point - but every last one has been true to the pics on the site. It is utterly opulent and a joy to work with!!! I use it as a second strand to fluff up and lighten the weight without adding too much halo. I also use it to add depth and dimension to the colors of my main yarn. The effect is kind of like heathers.
There aren't enough great things to say about this yarn And the price? Fuggedaboutit!!! A total value....Don't ever discontinue this, please!!!!

This yarn is amazing to work with! I use it two stranded, it makes a very fluffy and soft fabric. The colors are as shown in the pictures, I personnally ordered "creamy peach" and "Cherry Red", which I am completely in love with! They became staple colors in my works.
Hobbii service is outstanding. They keep you informed of every step in the process of your order. I received my order very quickly and their personalized, caring packages always make my day!

The color I ordered was mahogany, and I will say it is true to the color on the site! And it is true that this lace is super soft! I made a small swatch with a dusty rose colored yarn and wow! It added just the right amount of a deeper color to the swatch and made a beautiful combo! I can already tell I'm going to order more in the future 😌


EILEEN

I ordered colors: Ecru, Shiitake, Nougat, and Dark Rouge. The colors are exactly what they look like on the website!
They are definitely soft and good for double stranding.
I was worried about the acrylic content not making it soft, but when I double strand with wool, it feels really good!
Definitely worth the price.
