CLASSIC ALPACA [100% Peruvian Alpaca Superfine DK]

 


The Alpaca Yarn Co.
CLASSIC ALPACA
made in Peru

natural

Classic Alpaca is a premium quality, ultra soft, Peruvian superfine alpaca yarn in double knit weight. Alpaca fiber is lanolin-free and as the result it is hypoallergenic. This natural yarn is suitable for any kind of hand/machine knitting and crochet projects: sweaters and accessories, colourful Fair Isle knits, next-to-the-skin and baby articles.

There are approximately 40 alpacas on the Alpaca Yarn Company's farm in Pennsylvania. They are sheared for fleece, or the fiber is sourced in Peru.

FYI: Alpaca Fiber Micron Counts: › Royal Baby or Ultrafine - less than 20 microns. › Baby or Superfine - 20-23 microns. › Fine - 23-27 microns. › Medium or Adult - 27-31 microns. › Adult or Strong - 31-35.9 microns. › Coarse - more than 36 microns.
