made in Peru
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.
Please note: 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.
