Divina is a wonderful yarn quality where two of the world's softest natural fibers; baby alpaca and merino wool meet in an exquisitely soft and airy yarn. The fine fibers are held together by an ultra-thin net made from durable polyamide. 

The fine-meshed tube of polyamide is the foundation of the yarn. The tube is either black or white, depending on the color of the fibers. With the help of a special spinning technique, the mix of alpaca and wool is blown into the tube and creates a lovely, full volume. The construction creates a beautiful play of colors when the natural color of the tube shows delicately through and creates Divina’s beautiful, slightly mottled look.

With Divina, you can achieve lots of soft volume nicely balanced with the texture. The yarn has a natural, airy structure that stays nice and yummy when you crochet or knit with it. 

Divina is well-suited for both crocheting and knitting, and you can use it for a variety of projects, but we’d like to specially recommend chunky, soft accessories, sweaters, or chunky cardigans. The yarn is also so versatile that you, by varying needle/hook sizes can achieve a high level of flexibility when it comes to knitting tension. Divina is exquisite by itself but can, of course, be combined with thin lace yarns made from, e.g., alpaca or kid silk for an even more exciting play of colors. 

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

I have fallen in love with Divina Baby Alpaca yarn so much!

I have used the colors 6, 8, 12, 16, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, and 31. I found that number 6 was a bit on the scratchier side than the other colors. and found that numbers 12 and 31 are probably the softest of the bunch!

I used these to make Tunisian crochet fingerless globes and a pair of thumbless mittens. I first used some for a freehanded koi fish pillow plush, and that is what started my spark for it! I've made multiple pairs of fingerless gloves in the dark forest color, with cute mushroom details, including a pair with 3D ledge mushrooms like turkey tail!

Cons include, higher price range, frogging can be tricky, and big halo so finding stitches may be challenging for beginners.

While it is pricey, it's well-worth it to me! I have major sensory issues, and unless I'm sweaty, these don't get itchy!

I highly recommend!

Divina is a fantastic yarn, it's one of the softest that I've used (like.. cashmere soft. and ultra lofty) BUT. It's not for every project.

Just so no one encounters the same frustration I did, the stitch definition on this yarn is pretty non-existent so choose your patterns accordingly with this. I was attempting a textured brioche sweater and it turned out blobby so I did have to frog it. Frogging is also super difficult and mine created little nubs when I did frog it so I probably won't re-use the frogged yarn

However, it is a beautiful yarn with gorgeous colors and feel and would make amazing simple designs or colorwork, so I still rate this 5 star. I hope they keep this line of yarn because if so, it would be my go-to for worsted weight colorwork sweaters for sure

Divina is much softer than it looks. I've never used alpaca yarn, but it makes the perfect marriage with merino wool. I crocheted two hats and a headband with 3 skeins of color 13. They were so comfortable, not to mention beautiful; the complementary reds and browns spun into the yard made for a gorgeous blend. Because this was my first time working with this yarn blend, I did have some trouble with frogging due to the long fibers wrapped in the strands. Despite this downside, it's a very sturdy yarn. I highly recommend this yarn, and I can't wait to make more stuff with it!


Krista

Divina is one of the first times working with alpaca and it definitely will not be the last. I'm using the Light Petrol (27) color held with Diablo and it's ben a joy to work up cables and stockinette for my cardigan. Like other reviewers, I suggest frogging very gently, as the fibers stick and tangle sometimes (but that also might be because of my mohair substitute) . A great yarn for squishy, fluffy garments using simple stitches. It feels like it would crochet up nicely as well.


Dianne

I adore this yarn, it is just perfect for baby knitting. I have doubled it to crochet baby booties on size 5.00 mm hook and they are adorable! I also knitted a lovely wee vest for newborn baby size and shall be making many more. I used size 8mm knitting needles and doubled the yarn. 1 ball was sufficient for vest and a pair of newborn booties. Am off to look at the colour choices now and order some more.
