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.

I made a friend from work a scarf out of this alpaca silk and she wears it every day as she loves how light and soft it is, so that was a successful handmade gift! For some reason I just love knitting with this super soft yarn so I am slowly slowly knitting a little hat. I only wish I also ordered that pinkish shade in this yarn , it looks so pretty, maybe next time...


Belinda

Disgusting luxurious! Make sure you buy enough to make what ever it is you are making! Beautiful to knit with gorgeous against your skin I highly recommend this gorgeous yarn. Colors are diving. Luxury in your hands with a smooth gliding feel that only silk and alpaca can give. This yarn is beautifully milled to perfection and knits into gorgeous warmth and softness.

Just received my first order of this yarn it is so soft and absolutely beautiful I cant wait to make the baby sweater I have planned for this yarn. I am so pleased with the quality of all my purchases so far. Cant wait for this yarn to go on sale again so I can stock up now that I know of the high quality of it.


Sara

BEAUTIFUL yarn! 😍 So sad to see that it is being discontinued. It did seem lighter than sport weight - more like a light fingering, but absolutely beautiful in it's softness and halo. I hope that it comes back a bit heavier in weight (like a true sport) and OEKO-TEX® certified and/or organic.


Sara Simpson

First time ordering and I’m very satisfied with the order. I ordered Venezia and Istanbul Sunrise and the colors are beautiful. Also the yarn itself is very soft. When working a pattern with this yarn, you could feel it’s luxurious fibers. I would definitely order it again.
