Superfine Alpaca Knitting Yarns – Double Knit
Our Superfine yarns are very soft and they knit up beautifully. They are available in 50g balls in range of stunning colours in Double Knit and 4-Ply.
Every year, during the summer months, our alpacas are sheared. We sort their fleeces and then send the best to Devon processors, UK Alpaca Ltd – they then produce these wonderful yarns.
The Superfine yarn is made from 70% British alpaca and 30% British superfine Blue Faced Leicester wool. This is a well proven blend that offers increased resistance to shedding and pilling and adds loft and substance to the feel of the yarn. The yarn is as soft as our 100% alpaca yarn, and is suitable for all garments, including those that will be worn against the skin.
Suitable for machine wash on wool cycle, or hand washing.
You can use any Double Knit or 4-Ply knitting pattern with our yarns – but do remember to check your tension!
