Hobbii Soft Alpaca is an exquisite yarn of an exclusive grade. It’s spun from 100% pure alpaca and has all the best qualities of the superb alpaca fibers.
The alpaca is known all around the world for its soft, warm, and slightly curly fur. The animals’ furs have adapted to the extreme, constantly changing weather conditions in South America with both sun, heat, wind, and bitter cold. Warm when it’s cold and cool and airy when the sun is scorching. That’s what makes these fibers perfect all year round.
The alpaca fibers are hollow, actually like super thin tubes full of air, which grants them excellent insulating properties that’s up to eight times warmer than wool from sheep. That’s why you can keep warm with a very thin and light knit. When the fine, natural fibers are spun into our Soft Alpaca, the result is a lovely yarn quality that’s very durable and amazingly soft against your skin.
Soft Alpaca has a natural weight that makes the fabric drape beautifully whether it’s knit or crocheted. For the same reason it’s great for shawls, fabulous sweaters, and super soft accessories of all kinds. Alpaca does not contain lanolin, so if you’re, e.g., allergic to sheep’s wool, alpaca is a nice, natural alternative.
Colors no. 2 and 42 are completely natural shades of alpaca that haven’t been dyed.

This yarn is so soft and has a silky feel to it! I bought it in the color cappuccino (44) and also the soft alpaca lace to hold together in a shawl as an alternative to wool and mohair. I get quite sensitive around my neck, and this worked so perfectly! No irritation to my neck, I will definitely consider this yarn again for another scarf/shawl or a hat since it is so soft!
This yarn is so beautiful and soft! I double stranded it with a merino wool to make a hat and cowl, and they're so warm and fuzzy! It feels very strong too, so I imagine it will be very durable. Highly recommend this yarn
I bought this product to crochet a scarf. I read it was soft, but when you touch it....wow! It is much softer and not itchy. The colors are amazingly beautiful and easy to crochet with.
Very happy with the yarn!:)
I just finished a project with soft alpaca, and it was great to work with! Even consistency with stiches, no knots, no snagging and just a smooth pull out from its center. Highly recommend this yarn!
I bought the dark teal blue and used it to make a beanie for my nephew for Christmas. He absolutely loves the vibrant colour and the soft material. Will definitely be purchasing this again.
