Alpaca yarn

If you fancy the softest and finest yarn available, Alpaca is for you. The fibre comes from alpacas, that are similar animals to lamas. However, the coat of the alpaca is a lot thicker and especially the undercoat is very popular in the yarn industry. What makes alpaca fibre so special is the softness and lightness - not to mention that is is 100 % itch free. To top it off, the alpaca yarn is completely free of chemicals, meaning that it is completely unprocessed, only washed, which makes it an allergy friendly yarn choice.

The many characteristics of the alpaca yarn

Alpaca yarn is, without a doubt, a high class yarn of supreme quality. It is comfy with a natural sheen, making it very suitable for knitting and crocheting garments like cardigans, tops, and jumpers or mittens, hats, and scarves, because it is warm but at the same time allowing for heat regulation, so you will not break a sweat. It can also be used for summer garments, since the Alpaca fibre takes after the natural habitat of the alpacas and naturally adjusts to temperatures. This amazing quality gives you endless possibilities. It differs whether people like to work with alpaca fibre or not. Some may feel that it is too difficult to work with - given that it has no memory and gives little or no stability to the shape. This issue is often addressed by adding sheep fibre to the mix in order to add memory to the yarn. Sheep wool, however, has a tendency to itch more than the alpaca, which is something to consider before making your choice of yarn.

Good for everyday use

Without a doubt, the versatility of the alpaca fibre will allow you to create an abundance of projects - both knitted and crocheted - for all the seasons of the year. Our large range of different alpaca yarn will also make it easy for you to create exactly what you have envisioned. Our range has no less than 11 different kinds of alpaca yarns, making it possible to endeavor into many different kinds of projects for both winter and summer, children and adults. If you are contemplating crocheting or knitting a delicate summer top, we recommend that you choose the lighter and airy type of alpaca like Drops Air, which is particularly well suited for this purpose. If you, on the other hand, want to start a winter project, you should go for a heavier version of the alpaca, such as the Mayflower Sky, which is great for jumpers, ponchos, and scarves.

What our customers say about Alpaca yarn

Michele

This yarn is beautiful - I originally purchased because I wanted to try something new and I was intrigued by the Alpaca/wool blend. I was not disappointed! It is easy to work with and is so soft! I am making a long rectangular shawl and am loving how warm, but light it is. I will be buying more of this for sure!

Tara Easter

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.

Lorraine Peters

I purchased this yarn on a whim, actually a number of nearly every colour. I just love working with this yarn. Soft to the touch, beautifully elegant to wear. I knitted a triangle shawl, and with our weather cooling down now I get to use it frequently. The colours work together beautifully.

Lou Moretzsohn

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!:)

Deborah Gill

I am working on a sweater right now using this yarn. It is working up very nicely, the pattern of the sweater is clearly holding up and the yarn is not splitting! I can't wait for the finished product!

Donna Heffernan

I bought this yarn to make my daughter a poncho to wear at work for winter. It is so amazingly soft and the colour is perfect (Soft Grey). I can’t wait to start knitting :)
