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.
