Silk Alpaca is a premium quality natural (no static) blend of brushed superfine alpaca and mullberry silk. This ultra warm and featherweight yarn is suitable for fashionable pullovers and wraps. The content of the mulberry silk makes it yet strong and durable. Silk Alpaca is manufactured in solid hues or duo-colour melangés. Using a simple double knitting technique (K,P on both sides), you can achieve a slightly puffy mohair-like texture reminiscent of South African babykid.
