100% Alpaca loop yarn
Regular price €25,00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


100% Baby Alpaca loop yarn for the quality-conscious knitter.

If you want texture in your sweater, choose a loop alpaca yarn.

The loops in 100% alpaca yarn create wonderful knitting surfaces alone or together with another yarn. Running alpaca yarn is available in natural alpaca colors. The yarns are undyed and have not been treated with chemicals, so they retain the superior properties typical of alpaca fiber.

The yarn is made in Peru and the shades of the yarn vary less than our artisan yarns. However, please reserve enough yarn for the knitwear you are planning. If necessary, we help in assessing the need for yarn.

You can make e.g. a warm snooze blanket or a soft November beanie.

Skein: 340m ~100g
