    An extremely soft and versatile 100% pure wool from the alpacas in South America. The filaments in alpaca wool are 3 times stronger and have an insulating capacity 7 times that of ordinary lambs wool. Creates very warm and cosy garments, the delicate cloud of filaments making it almost silky and very soft to touch. Very easy to handle and a lovely wool to knit as stitches glide along the needle effortlessly!.

    You may use Alpaca for all Drops patterns in Camelia, Silketweed, Silke, Safran, Baby-ull and Cotton Viscose. If you knit with double thread Alpaca, you may use it for patterns in Paris and Alaska as well.

      I am using this with the alpaca silk 'brushed' and it is a joy to work with!
      This has just become my favorite yarn to knit with, I would not hesitate to use this again! In fact, I have placed another order already!!!

      I love Drops Alpaca. The color of this yarn is a beautiful light gray. It was just the color I was imagining for my upcoming project. I live in a warm climate so I make mostly lightweight sweaters for cooler evenings. The weight and texture of this yarn allows me to make a wooley feeling sweater that isn't too heavy. The service was super fast. I ordered my yarn on Wednesday and received it Friday (though I only live a state away). Oh and I LOVE the new labels with the cute little smiling Alpaca!!!
