Alpacas produce one of the softest and most luxurious natural fibers in the world - so soft and rare it was once reserved for royalty. It is warmer and softer than wool. Because it is a hollow fiber it is very light and has a remarkable insulating and wicking quality. Alpaca is known to be hypoalergenic meaning there are no lanolins which cause the itching as in wool.
This natural silver gray yarn was spun at one of the best mini-mills in the US. The fiber comes from my suri alpaca "Arruda" and huacaya alpaca "Artimis" with about 15% cashmere. It is a beauifully luxurious gray blend that knits up wonderfully, and is ohhhh so soft!
