This shiny, sport weight yarn provides a polished sheen and elegant drape. Offered in a brilliant array of colors. This is one of the most pleasant yarns to touch, silky and fluffy almost like stroking a bunny rabbit. Alpaca boasts to be softer and warmer than merino wool and is one of the few hair fibers with long staple lengths and small micron diameters. Alpaca Silk is one of the most opulent yarns, but not the most outrageous price tag. Get used to the compliments headed your way. For even more shimmer, try Metalico by Blue Sky Fibers.
