Alpaca Yarn

Alpaca Yarn

Filter

      Our yarn has been spun as two ply using a yarn count of R74Tex/2 suitable for a 12 gauge knitting machine (12 stitches per inch).

      The yarn is 95% alpaca and 5% merino – the merino provides more fibre cohesion and offers greater bulk.

      This yarn is extremely fine (under 20 micron) and best used on a knitting machine. It could be mixed with other wool types to better suit hand knitters.

      Each cone contains 1 kg of yarn.
