100% Baby Alpaca Knitting Yarns
Our Baby Alpaca yarns are made from the finest British alpaca fleece, to give the ultimate in softness. These yarns are 100% alpaca and spun from our own alpaca fleeces. These yarns are available in 50g balls and they are in the natural shades of alpacas.
Our yarns are available in different plys, including Double Knit and 4-Ply – availability varies according to the colour – the choice is best viewed by selecting the colour required and then the type, on the drop down menus.
Every year, during the summer months, our alpacas are sheared. The term ‘Baby Alpaca’ refers to fibre that is below 20 microns in diameter – often an alpaca’s first fleece will be this fine, and opefully its subsequent fleeces too. After sorting and grading of the fleece, we had the ‘Baby’ spun into yarn in a mill in Oxfordshire. We have a limited supply of these yarns, so please ensure you buy sufficient for your project (we will always refund unused yarn).
We recommend hand washing garments made from our baby alpaca range.
You can use any Double Knit or 4-Ply knitting pattern with our yarns – but do remember to check your tension!
