Natural alpaca yarn is prized among designers and knitters because this fibre feels like pure luxury. It is soft, durable, silky, and feels like a warm, comforting hug on the skin. Alpaca yarn is a dream to work with thanks to its natural drape. Since it is breathable and water repellant, alpaca yarn is often used to make lightweight winter items such as sweaters, socks, hats, and mittens. Have allergies? Don’t worry! Alpaca yarn is also hypoallergenic.
