The secret to Alpakka’s warmth lies in its hollow and breathable fiber. Unlike other materials that trap heat, Alpakka’s breathable nature allows it to keep you warm without making you feel overheated. This means you can wear Alpakka garments in any weather, whether it’s chilly or warm, and still feel comfortable. Additionally, Alpakka fiber does not contain lanolin, making it a great option for those with sensitive skin.
Alpakka is also renowned for its Superfine quality. This term refers to alpaca fiber with a diameter between 25-26 microns, and is considered to be one of the softest alpaca grades used for hand-knitting yarn. Whether you’re an experienced knitter or a beginner, you will love the feel of Alpakka yarn in your hands. The softness and warmth of this material make it the perfect choice for creating cozy and comfortable garments, such as scarves, hats, sweaters, and blankets.
So if you’re looking for a yarn that is soft, warm, and environmentally friendly, look no further than Alpakka. With its exceptional insulating properties and Superfine quality, Alpakka is the ideal choice for creating comfortable and long-lasting garments that you’ll love for years to come.
