Alpaca Wools have been produced for centuries by the indigenous people of the Andes and come from the fleeces of the Alpaca or Vicugna Pacos.The fiber thus produced is soft, durable, luxurious and silky.
Whilst similar to sheep's wool Alpaca wool is actually warmer and not prickly and because it contains no lanolin is hypoallergenic.It is also naturally water repellent and difficult to ignite. So all in all it is a highly sought after and superior yarn which is delightful to knit and crochet with and produces soft, warm and cosy garments.
Normally is is blended with a synthetic yarn, such as acrylic, this way the resulting yarn retains it's special qualities but is more durable and shape stable.
We are currently pleased to be able to offer Alpaca Royal, produced by the international yarn company of Alize, which has a 30% alpaca content along with 15% pure new wool and 55% premium acrylic.
