SUPER ALPACA [100% Alpaca Superfine Chunky], Estelle

 


Estelle SUPER ALPACA, made in Peru

natural


The quality of this yarn completely reflects its name - Super Alpaca. It is a next-to-the-skin, pure dehaired Peruvian Alpaca with superior softness. This Alpaca yarn is velvety to the touch, slightly and naturally lustrous, and has a soft 'halo' similar to angora-merino blend. Due to its light chunky weight, Super Alpaca is suitable for making quick-and-easy fall-winter knitwear: pullovers, coats, cardigans, shrugs, waistcoats, scarves, hats & mittens, men's accessories, baby knits, and felt. Note: We would recommend slightly tight knitting to avoid stretching in shape after the first wash.

Alpaca fiber is lanolin free, therefore it is hypoallergenic. Most people that are allergic or sensitive to wool can wear alpaca garments - they are not itchy at all.
