Alpaca is a highly sought after yarn due to its soft and warm characteristics that are extremely similar to mohair (both are hair fibers). It is also hypoallergenic and perfect for those with wool allergies!

Enjoy Baby Alpaca, a high sheen and springy soft yarn with an excellent stitch definition that creates an beautiful drape.
