Alpakka Silke


Introducing ALPAKKA SILKE, a luxurious blend of 70% baby alpaca and 30% mulberry silk, is epitome of softness and comfort. The combination of the silky smoothness of mulberry silk and the softness of baby alpaca creates a fabric that is gentle and cool against the skin, making it the perfect choice for baby clothes and accessories.

Baby alpaca is not fiber from cute little alpaca babies; it’s the term used for alpaca fiber between 20-23 microns (micrometers) and is one of the finest and softest alpaca grades used for hand-knitting yarn.

Not only is ALPAKKA SILKE soft and comfortable, but it is also highly functional. Both alpaca and silk are known for their heat-regulating properties, which means that this yarn is able to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Additionally, the silk used in ALPAKKA SILKE has a unique moisture-absorbing property, which helps to keep you feeling dry and comfortable all day long.

ALPAKKA SILKE is also a great option for those with sensitive skin, as the alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin. This makes it a perfect choice for those with allergies or skin sensitivities, who may struggle with other types of wool or yarn.

Whether you’re a seasoned knitter or a beginner, you will love the feel and quality of ALPAKKA SILKE. Its combination of softness, comfort, and functionality make it a must-have for your next crafting project. Whether you’re making a baby blanket, a cozy scarf, or a hat, ALPAKKA SILKE will help you create a project that is both beautiful and practical.
