It'll be love at first feel... plush and soft, this huggable blend of premium superfine alpaca and Highland wool is sure to keep you warm. Easy to knit, light in weight, this yarn delivers superior insulation. Each single hank is made up of three tonal strands of thick and thin yarn.
Our yarn is spun from alpacas who live 10,000 feet above sea level in the Andes mountains of Peru. Raised at high altitudes in freezing cold, the animals have softer hair with more thermal capacity than their lowland cousins. Highland sheep are unique to
Peru and combine the Merino’s softness with the durability of Corriedale. The resulting fiber is lofty, voluminous and deliciously toasty.
