You will not believe the wonderful softness of this alpaca yarn.
This yarn is our FLECKS yarn. It is hand dyed to produce tiny flecks of white in your knitting. (Refer to the last photo of this listing for a sample of socks knitted with this yarn.)
The wool gives it body and the nylon gives durability. But what shines the most in this yarn is the alpaca fibre. It is soft, lustrous and lofty. You will want to knit all of your socks with this from now on.
Now we recommend it for socks but it would be perfect for mittens and hats too, as well as cardigans. We have other yarns for your cowls and shawls that would be better suited. Just check with us.
Lonely Oak Alpaca yarns are produced with the environment in mind. Harsh chemicals are not used during the processing. We dye with environmentally friendly acid dyed that are non-hazardous, non-chrome, low impact and heavy metal-free.
We have alpacas on our farm since 2011. The fibre they produce is simply amazing and we are so happy to share our harvest with you. We have limited quantities and they can vary from year to year.
Each skein weighs 115 grams / 420 yards and is plenty for a pair of socks. 60% alpaca / 20% merino/ 20% nylon
CARE: As always, we recommend hand washing the final product in cool water with a product like our Eucalan. Then, flat to dry.
You know we do our best to photograph the exact colour of our yarns. It is expected that each monitors can interpret these colours differently.
