This is a lovely yarn spun from 100% superfine alpaca. The alpaca fiber is untreated, which means that it is only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fiber’s natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality.
This quality is spun from 3 strands with an extra twist to provide a durable surface, and it’s available in many colours, from the vibrant to the more subdued. Solid, natural and mixed tones. The last are manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mix effect.
