Alpaca SuperLight by Lang
You simply won't believe this super-soft, super-fine, super-luxurious, super-light alpaca yarn from Lang. This yarn has a light halo, yet is less transparent than most brushed yarns. No tickle or scratch like mohair, none of the itchiness you might expect with a feathery yarn.

This yarn really is super light--a dress takes only 175 grams in size small, and a medium long sleeve sweater is about 200 grams. That coat will float down the street with you--it's like wearing a warm alpaca cloud!

Perfect for lace scarves, shawls and stoles, but great for lighter-than-air sweaters too.

See the Lang booklets featuring this yarn here.
See laceweight patterns from Fiddlesticks, FiberTrends, Goddess Knits.

3 of 5 Yarn great, packaging not so great. February 26, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Sterling Heights, MI United States  
My yarn came quickly which was wonderful. My only problem was in cutting open the packaging, I cut carefully in the area of the flap that was the seal.  I found out too late that the yarn had moved into the area and the scissors cut through one of the skeins. I believe if the yarn was secured by wrapping in tissue paper or placing in a plastic bag, the yarn would not have been able to shift and the accidental cutting wouldn’t have happened.  It was very sad to have to throw out the cut pieces.

Reviewer: Karen machado from Bristol, CT United States  
Beautiful yarn and excellent customer service!  I received this yarn directly from the manufacturer, as the store was out of my color.  They were so kind and asked the yarn manufacturer to send the ordered color to me directly.  That really was very kind and outstanding customer service!  Thank you!
