♥ Here is a link to some projects on Ravelry using my Chunky Weight Alpaca :)

The alpacas insulating capacity is greater than sheep's wool and the filaments in alpaca wool are also much stronger, making it a warmer and durable natural choice! Alpaca is very fine and super soft, giving it a luxurious next to the skin feel. It also contains no lanolin, therefore is a perfect alternative for those who have allergies to sheep's wool!
Our customers have described our yarn as squishy, incredibly soft with a perfect halo, very warm and cozy, and easy to work with as the stitches glide along the needle or fingers effortlessly. Alpaca yarn is feltable, so hand wash in cool water with a mild soap and lay flat to dry. Do not agitate, twist or shock the fibers by placing in cold then hot water or it will felt.

Over 300 happy alpacas reside at our farm in Southern Alberta Canada and we couldn't be more proud of the products we offer for sale!

I hand dyed this skein using professional dyes. I welcome custom orders! Just convo me and let me know what you would like!

While I try my best to make the pictures true to color, please remember every monitor shows slightly different. Please also note that weights and yardages are approximate.

SHIPPING: I am more than happy to combine shipping! I have set the shipping cost "with another item" the same as the first because it can change depending on what other item you are purchasing. If you would like more than one thing please email me for a quote :-) atozalpacas [!at] gmail.com or convo me here on Etsy.

Average review
This yarn is just as lovely as the worsted, same lovely texture and I would say this chunky is closer to a store bought worsted so if you're working with regular patterns I would recommend this in lieu of the worsted weight. Fats shipping and innovative shipping method! Still love the llama pics.
