100% Alpaca yarn

Alpaca Yarn is one of the most if not the most sustainable natural fibre.  It is produced by alpacas who are the most sustainable life stock. They are shorn once a year and can produce 10-15 high quality fleeces in their lifetime. It does not contain lanolin so no harsh scouring is needed. Just a gentle wash to remove the dust. Then it is spun in the most delectable yarns.

Alpaca yarns are soft, light and warm. It wicks moisture away from the body so keeps you warm and dry. Very important for babies and children.
