A special blend of 82% natural black alpaca and 18% red bamboo make up this silky soft yarn. It's been milled into a sport weight just right for knitting, crocheting and weaving your favorite projects. The bamboo adds a bit of a drape to the yarn so will lend itself to any pattern that requires drape.
It's made of fiber grown by our alpaca herd. Alpaca fiber is naturally lightweight yet softer, more durable and warmer than wool. Our alpacas are bred to produce fine, consistent fleece high on the comfort factor. The fiber is sorted and graded which again, makes for a significantly higher quality yarn. Alpaca is hypoallergenic. There may be minimal vegetation in this yarn, but it is easily picked out while knitting or crocheting. No harsh chemicals are used to dissolve the vegetation, as are in commercial yarn mills.
