Alpaca yarn is a warm, resistant, and lightweight fiber, perfect for knitting soft and airy fabrics with thick needles. Alpaca is a camelid species originally from South America. Alpaca fiber contains no grease, which enables it to be dyed without losing shine or softness. Nevertheless, alpaca features a wide range of natural undyed colors. If you want to keep warm this winter with hypoallergenic, breathable, and lightweight garments, we recommend working with alpaca yarns.
