The color possibilities that acrylic offers encounter the softest alpaca yarn creating Wheel of Alpaca, the most luxurious of our acrylic cake yarns. 

Wheel of Alpaca is made out of 80% acrylic combined with 20% of alpaca. This blend will make acrylic lovers fall in love, and will definitely convert those who are not. 

The color transitions are gradients, creating a beautiful ombré effect that ranges from earth and softer shades to bright and more intense colors. 

If our other gradient cakes seemed a bit tricky to work with, this beautiful yarn is thicker and beginner-friendly as you can either use 3.5 mm (US 4) knitting needles or a 4.5 mm (US 7) crochet hook to start crafting. Wheel of Alpaca is 940 m (1028 yds) of super soft fluffiness and will give you many hours of knitting and crochet coziness. One cake will be enough to knit or crochet scarves and shawls. Being so soft, Wheel of Alpaca can be used to craft any type of garment, as well as cozy blankets. Moreover, it will be a great alternative for people allergic to sheep's wool. 

The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much handier to find the beginning of your skein. 

Wheel of Alpaca is really the thicker gradient cake we have all been waiting for.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at

This yarn is one of my favorites that Hobbii has. I’ve purchased several cakes of this yarn because I love it so much. I not only love the bold colors that are offered but I also love how it feels, and how for me easy it is to use. I have bought them not only for myself but as gifts and prizes for giveaways for my YouTube channel. And it’s always so hard to give them away because of how much I love them. I have made lots of shawls with this yarn due to the softness and each person that I’ve given the shawls made with this yarn loves them. Definitely worth picking up for shawls.


WOW! Really pleased with the quality of this one! I love the colors, I love the texture, it's pleasant to use, and has a great drape!!!
It's 20% alpaca, but such a high quality acrylic that it keeps the delightful soft feel. I'm always impressed with Hobbii's standards when it comes to acrylic where other companies can have a less pleasant feel, and this is absolutely up to their high standards!!!! I love the color choices too!


I just finished a pullover in this and I absolutely love it. This yarn could pass for a blend with a lot more alpaca, it is fabulously soft. The drape is fabulous. It is warm and light. The yardage is pretty impressive--it takes awhile to get through a wheel. And the colors are really intense. I can't wait to use this again.


So darn SOFT!! The huge amount of yardage!! I'm a serious alpaca fan ...the only way this yarn could be better is if it had more alpaca content.
The colorways are truly yummy!!
This is a great value - especially on sale!! It handles well and doesn't split.
Another winner at Hobbii!!


I loved working with it, it's super soft, and it has a nice drape and a beautiful haze. The color changes are nice and long and the colors are vibrant. One wheel was enough to make a large granny square sweater. I will be happy to work with it again. Amazing product!
