Alpaca Royal is the perfect combination of luxury, nature and sustainability. It is a wonderfully soft, delicate, hard wearing yarn made from pure alpaca wool. Listed as Superfine/Fingering weight yarn, Alpaca Royal is incredibly light and soft.
The term "Royal" is used to describe the alpaca fiber with a diameter of less than 19.5 microns that comes from young white alpacas found in the highlands of the Andes. We have blended this yarn, spun in Peru, with 20 percent soft baby alpaca in various natural shades, to create our beautiful color palette.
This 2 ply yarn is fine and light and similar to cashmere. This lightness together with its generous yardage makes Alpaca Royal go a very long way. A sweater will take little more than 250 grams. It is ideal for light yet warm tops and is also perfect for accessories like scarves or shawls. 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.

Dry flat, preferably on a terry towel, to keep its shape.<br />Please do not dry it on a heat source or in the sun!
