Our Alpaca Lace is a delicate and hard wearing yarn made from pure alpaca wool. It is spun in Peru from 100% baby alpaca fleece which makes it unbelievably luxurious and amazingly soft. The soft and delicate fibers come from the first shearing of the baby animals. It is incredibly light and perfect for lace work.
This 2 ply yarn is soft, fine and light, but does not fluff. It comes in various natural shades as well as a stunning range of colors. It is ideal for delicate lacy light tops, scarves, shawls and even baby clothes. It has excellent heat regulating properties and is extremely soft on the skin. As alpaca contains very little lanolin, it is perfect for people with the most sensitive skin.
