New to our knitting supplies this year is Alpaca yarn! Alpaca is a natural fiber, breathable, warmer than wool, durable, hypoallergenic, and does not absorb moisture or odors. Lighter in weight than sheep’s wool while providing warmth and softness and can be hand washed. Alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin which is the main irritant in many other natural fibers.
The fine lightweight 4-ply yarn is 95% alpaca and 5% wool. Easy to knit with at any skill level. You can even dye your own colors. Grown and processed in the USA. Gauge: 4-5 stitches per inch on US #7-9 (4.5-5.5 mm). Apx. 100 yards/2 oz skein.
