So many lovely pure Alpaca and Alpaca blend yarns, in weights from the finest lace weight up to quick knitting chunky.  Alpaca is naturally soft, hypoallergenic, and warm.  It can be spun like wool for fabulously squishy soft fabrics.  Alpaca can also be brushed as mohair often is with long fibers left to create a soft halo that blooms. In that case, the best yarns contain a small amount of a strong blending yarn such as nylon in order to minimize shedding.

Novena
by Lang

Novena is an exceptionally appealing and light hand knitting yarn out of precious merino wool and glossy alpaca. Because of an innovative spinning technique, this yarn knits like a lightweight worsted, but the resulting garment is airy and very light to wear. Wonderful for fair isle knitting, because it knits up fast but isn't heavy. So soft, too!

As usual, the Lang colors are beautiful, and appealing, and completely current. This yarn lends itself to stitch patterning. There are many beautiful patterns for this yarn in all the Fall and Winter Fatto a Mano books.
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.

Passione
by Lang

Passione is another incredible look-alike creation from Lang Yarns! This beautiful blend of baby alpaca, nylon, and elastan (a stretchy fiber) mimics a lightly brushed mohair, without all the tickly sensation and the exorbitant cost! Because of an innovative spinning technique, this yarn knits like a lightweight worsted, but the resulting garment is airy and very light to wear.
It is so, so soft, and perfect for all sorts of uses.

As usual, the Lang colors are beautiful, and appealing, and completely current. This yarn is particularly good for big color work, like stripes or color blocking, but not stitch patterning. There are many beautiful patterns for this yarn in the new Fall and Winter Fatto a Mano books,
#245, #247, and #249.

We are bringing the most popular Lang colors in first. We expect to stock in all other colors as they are ordered. If you order one of the colors we do not have, we will let you know--it will not take more than an extra 5-7 days to get to you. No extra charge or minimums.

EcoPuna Baby Alpaca Special Black

Naturally black ("true black") alpacas are quite rare, and this accounts for the difference in price between this color and the other Eco Puna colors. Extra hand culling is required to remove stray non-black fibers and produce a solid black yarn without any dying. This black color is put up in 25g balls, but is otherwise the same spin and yardage. It is exceptionally soft.

With the black edition of Eco Puna, Amano aims to support the Andean communities in the breeding of alpacas with pure black fiber in an effort to re-establish this population, which has dropped dramatically, to the point that is accounts for only 0.03% of all alpaca fiber.

Eco Puna is the natural undyed version of Puna. Puna is the quintessential luxury yarn for larger projects and garments. It is 100% Baby alpaca in a DK weight suitable for your favorite patterns. The natural variations in the fiber produce a lovely heathery shade in every hue.

Baby Alpaca fiber has a diameter of 22.5 microns, which is equivalent to the upper limit of cashmere. This yarn has a very even 4ply spin, yielding a yarn approximately the same thickness as 8-ply, or DK weight yarn.

This yarn is a sumptuous choice for a larger garment or lace project. A size US 6 needle will produce a solid stockinette fabric that can be luxuriously worn next to the skin.

WoolAddicts Earth

Malou Light
by Lang

Another addition to the Malou family of yarns: Malou Light! This yarn is truly exceptional. This chunky yarn is so airy, you won't believe the yardage in the 50g ball. Many of the same characteristics of regular super bulky Malou, it's light and so so squeezably soft, almost like unspun fiber. Fantastic!

Great to use for any basic pattern at 4st/in, this is a quick knit with a luxurious look and feel, and will be a staple in your wardrobe for years. Also, there are many attractive patterns for this yarn in the most recent Fall and Winter pattern books from Lang.

Apu Imperial Alpaca

Apu in the native language of the Incas means "mountain god." For the Incas, the finest alpaca textiles were comparable in value to gold and the finest jewelry.

Apu is 100% Imperial Alpaca, the finest alpaca in the world. Imperial alpaca is limited to fibers only 17 microns in diameter, which is comparable to fine cashmere. It is sorted and de-haired by hand, and is available only in its natural color, raw white. This yarn has a very even 2ply spin, yielding a yarn approximately the same thickness as 3-ply baby or sock yarn.

This yarn is a perfect choice for the softest lace project ever. I would use a size 7 or 8 needle for an intricate lace project, like a fancy scarf or maybe even a US 9 for a wedding mantilla or veil. Two balls will make a handsome cowl.
