Silk-Alpaca is a premium quality natural blend of brushed superfine alpaca and mullberry silk. This ultra warm and featherweight yarn is suitable for fashionable pullovers and accessories. The content of the mulberry silk makes it 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 babykid mohair.
