    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.

    1. FOR WINTER GLOVES  star rating

      Posted by Sharon on 24th Nov 2016

      I have ordered this product before.
      It knits up beautifully for winter gloves.
      I have two pairs and I will be working on two
      more pairs shortly.

    2. DROPS ALPACA YARN  star rating

      Posted by Sharon Gray on 3rd Apr 2015

      I have yet to use this yarn. However, it will be used for knitted winter gloves.
      I believe your website says that this is a four ply yarn; what I received is a
      three ply. That is alright with me as it is what I have used in the past.
      This yarn makes wonderful winter gloves for this climate. My only complaint is that it sheds somewhat until the first laundry.
