Alpaca

Alpaca is an interesting fiber.  It is light, yet very warm.  There is no lanolin in alpaca fiber, so people who are allergic to lanolin can wear alpaca.  It is a luxurious fiber from a noble animal.  However, alpaca is a luxury fiber and care should be taken of garments knit with this fiber.  We recommend washing by hand, and laying flat to dry.

Our yarns are sold by the kilo. Skeins are packaged ten skeins of 100 grams each to equal a kilo.

  • Baby Yak Cloud

    41% Baby Alpaca, 13% 18.5 Micron Merino, 10% Yak, 35% Silk

    437 yds/50g skein, sold in half kilo packs of 10 x 50g skeins

    WPI 20

    The gauge on 3mm (between US2 and US3) is 26sts and 46 rows.

    This yarn is exquisite. The soft warm natural yak colour gives a warm undertone to the yarn. This yarn can be dyed or knit as it is.  The speckles on this are super soft and look really natural. The yarn is a joy to knit and creates a soft Yak halo. The resulting fabric is super light and warm. This yarn would work well on a larger needle size than US3 to create a more open Fabric. I've stranded it with the Tibetan 4ply to give make a gorgeous swatch. This yarn is strong and would work as a weft, it may work as a warp, but I don’t know how well it would work with a lot of movement from the heddles, if you try it let me know!

    I would use this yarn for lace shawls/cowls, and light sweaters, and works a treat to add a warm halo stranded with other yarns.

    90% Baby Suri Alpaca, 10% Silk

    246 yds/100g skein, sold in kilo packs of 10 x 100g skeins

     You know those tiny grey super fluffy kittens? This is what squishing this yarn reminds me of. It's super soft, fluffy and silky, absolutely gorgeous. A sweater or cowl made in this yarn will be divine and something you will never want to take off. There is zero itch factor for this yarn, a super alternative for those that don't get on with Mohair.

    The yarn takes the dye well, speckles spread softly. The skeins may require a little re-fluff depending on your dyeing method once done. I made two swatches for this yarn, one in #7 and one in #8 both work, nicely, the size 7 has a neater quality, but I like the drape of the #8.

    16sts and 28 rows over 4" using #7needles

    15sts and 22rows over 4" using #8 needles
